The kitchen at Anna Maria Oyster Bar's Bridge Street Pier location recently developed a new series of dishes that will be on the menus of all of the Oyster Bar restaurants through the end of the year.
The new seasonal menu, dubbed "From the Ranch to the Gulf," includes an oyster dish that mixes both fried and raw bivalves, a good deal on 20 fried shrimp, a tuna poke bowl and fried ribs. The menu is available at both lunch and dinner, and will be served all the way through Friday, Dec. 31. Check out the full list of dishes here.
In addition to the new fall menu, the restaurants will be marking Breast Cancer Awareness Month by selling specialty drinks. Proceeds from sales will go toward Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, a series of events that raise money for breast cancer patients, and My Breast Friends 941, a local nonprofit that supports patients.
