The Oyster Club earns its accolades
4 Jan 2023
We decided it was time to pay another visit to the Oyster Club after the Connecticut Restaurant Association named the executive chef there, Renee Touponce, chef of the year at its annual CRAzies Awards the first week of December. It was a good decision.
There were five of us who had dinner just after Christmas, and the rustic dining room, with dark wood, cozy lighting, and elk antlers mounted on the wall, was festive for the holiday season. Outside, the building was decked with white lights, wreaths with red bows, and garland. We came with holiday appetites.
