Elm Square Oyster Co. ​

These briny beauties don’t get any fresher than at Elm Square Oyster Co., where chef-owner Matthew Morello drives up to Kittery, Maine, at least twice a week to hand-select them from the small growers along the coast. Curious consumers can be guaranteed to learn the story behind each of the seven or eight bivalves on offer each night, and the well-trained staff can guide even inexperienced slurpers to the oyster of their dreams.
