Diana's Oyster Bar & Grill menu
Taking advantage of their superlative produce from next door, Diana's Oyster Bar & Grill offers a sleek indoor oyster bar to slurp up the freshest oysters from both coasts of Canada and the U.S., and again, at a fraction of the cost of downtown oyster bars. "There are no transportation costs. We just walk five steps across the parking lot to get more oysters," says manager Philip Ho, who used to be at Starfish as well as Rodney’s. Jason Kennedy parachuted in from Pusateri’s and is now ensconced as executive chef. His food is fresh, fun and above all, good looking. We stopped by for a quick lunch before heading into Diana's Seafood, and enjoyed a wonderfully fresh Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail, Grilled Octopus and outstanding Fish & Chips.
Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail served with classic cocktail sauce and lemon
Diana's Fish & Chips with crispy beer battered fish chosen daily
served with homemade fries, coleslaw and tartar sauce
Grilled Octopus marinated in extra virgin olive oil, garlic, lemon zest & fresh herbs,
served with a warm tomato caper and kalamata olive salsa, charred lemon and sliced baguette
There was a large table beside ours feasting on platters of Oysters, Littleneck Clams steamed in a roasted garlic fennel cream sauce, Fried Calamari, Steamed Whole Lobster and Sashimi-Grade Yellow Fin Tuna Carpaccio. Yet another table were enjoying Beer Battered Fried Fanny Bay Oysters and Diana's Lobster Club Sandwich, which led me to only one possible conclusion — we had to come back again very soon. There are just too many temptations to succumb to in one afternoon!
