Cafe Summer Lunch at Select Oyster Bar

9:55 AM

As much as I wish Summer would last forever, August is really summer's last hurrah before Pumpkin Spice Everything and the inevitable varieties of Halloween candy take over the aisles of CVS. Thankfully, Summer is still in it's peak and late summer produce is just hitting it's stride. The Summer Cafe Lunch menu at Select Oyster Bar is the perfect mesh of seafood and late summer produce and did I mention it's only $33 for three courses? 

Your first course offers up a choice of a Half Dozen Island Creek Oysters or Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs. I'm an oyster gal myself, but I got a taste of the Smoked Salmon Deviled Eggs at an influencer lunch and they were incredible; the smoked salmon flavor comes through nicely. Starters include your choice of a fresh Heirloom Tomato Salad with Niçoise olives, cucumber, and basil, or a Chilled Ratatouille with soft cooked egg, shaved pecorino, and cracked pepper. 

Finally, for your main course you can choose between Soupe de Poisson, a Mediterranean fish stew with toasted fennel and saffron aioli, or a decadent Trout Amandine with haricot vert, toasted almond brown butter, and frisée. I went the Oyster/Heirloom Salad/Trout Amandine route and could not have had a more enjoyable lunch experience. Actually, add a glass of Forty Ounce or Scribe Wineries Rosé and that's the ultimate lunch experience!

Select is one of my go-to dining spots in the Back Bay, my usual order is a glass of rosé and an order of their Avocado Toast. It's not unusual for me to pop in just for that-- Maybe Chef will consider calling it the Style Wire Special and will put it on the menu... Until then, try out the Cafe Summer Lunch Menu, available 11:30am-2:30pm until August 31st!
