B&T Oyster Bar

B&T Oyster Bar is a modern oyster bar in Portland, Oregon. B&T Oyster Bar is headed by Chef Trent Pierce, a third generation restaurateur. It is the boisterous counterpart to his more refined Roe, located at the back of B&T. Fresh oysters on the half shell rotate daily, with up to 8 varietals available. The small plates menu is highlighted with Pierce’s inventive, fun creations. Emphasizing local seafood paired with fresh, seasonal ingredients the plates rely heavily on French and Asian flavors. King Crab Hand Rolls with glass noodles, nuoc cham mayonnaise, yuzu tobiko, and soy paper or house made Dan Dan Noodles with szechuan spiced seafood ragu, pistachio butter, and chilli oil are just a few of the delicious options at this delightful oyster bar. Artfully crafted cocktails, rotating drafts, and local wines compliment the food. Please join us to experience B&T Oyster Bar.

"My dinner was excellent, starting with an oyster shooter and grilled oysters which were out of this world, with a main course of steelhead fillet served over clams and mussels. My companion for dinner had a more mixed experience, and her salad had quite a bit too much dressing on it, leading to eating the last part of the salad out of a pool of dressing. She also had the lobster pot pie, their signature dish, and was unimpressed with the crust and with the amount of lobster in it. We topped this all off with a spectacular Earl Grey tea custard, which should not be missed.
I'd say try this restaurant, especially the oysters. The level of service was outstanding and, notwithstanding too much dressing on the salad, the food was great. If this will be an issue for your, I'm sure the salad dressing could be provided on the side."

"We stopped in at B&T Oysters for an appetizer before moving on to Bar Avignon for dinner. Had a dozen delicious oysters (4 kinds) and a couple glasses of French bubbly. Will definitely go back for a full dinner. The menu looked great and the service was wonderful. Glad they're around."
