Dish of the month: Oyster happy hour at The Five Fisherman

This is top shell-f snacking


The city’s assault on patio season has had no effect on Little Fish, the casual downstairs portion of The Five Fishermen Restaurant & Grill (1740 Argyle Street). Its patio is downright lovely, with enough trees nearby to block out all but one crane, and a pleasant nautical vibe from the blue and white striped awnings and string lights that hang above. And thank god for that, because Little Fish’s Oyster Happy Hour should be a summer staple. It’s one of the best bangs for your buck in town, too: For $15 you are served up a half-dozen briny local oysters and a glass of wine—the Jost Tidal Bay is a lovely pairing and a pretty perfect summer quaff—or beer.
