The Grilled Oyster Company

Washington DC

The blue panels of glass in the windows of this sleek Cathedral Heights restaurant douse the whole place in blue light that makes it feel as if you were underwater -- appropriate for an eatery serving entirely seafood. Here, fish, crab, lobster, oysters, and the like come every way possible, from the starters of lobster bisque soup and calamari salad, to the big entree plates of seared Chesapeake rockfish and clam- and mussel-laden linguini.
