the whole shebang at f&d

clockwise from left: Irish trout ceviche, iceberg wedge with creamy herb dressing and bacon, a dozen oysters, bacon & chorizo arancini hush puppies, smoked peel-n-eat shrimp, warm baby octupus with lemongrass & crispy shallots

This might be a post I regret running my mouth about, but I recently discovered a happy hour that is way too good of a deal to keep to myself.  Dollar oysters are definitely a thing, but Foreign & Domestic's Dollar Oyster Night (every Tuesday from 5:30 until they run out) is much more than that.  For $33, you can get "the whole shebang"-- the five plates above, plus a dozen oysters (last night they had  Summersides and Riptides) and housemade bread and butter.  I split this with two others and we were too full for any of Jodi's delicious desserts!  All Texas beer is also $2.00, and I finally got to try Hops & Grain's The One They Call Zoe, a lager with a slight citrus finish which went quite well with our sea-based feast.
