Located in a renovated historic Homestead Building, Splash is an upscale oyster bar and seafood restaurant with artistic, colorful decor and heavenly food. Don’t let the magnificent murals and huge aquariums distract you from what really matters at Splash: fresh fish from all corners of the world and six kinds of oysters.
The fish arrives daily from places such as Boston, Key Largo, Seattle, and Honolulu. Their Oyster Bar has the freshest live oysters from the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest and New England bays. Chef Dominic Iannarelli is a veritable magician who treats his ingredients with the utmost respect – the seafood he prepares is succulent, bursting with flavors, and done to perfection.
His Sea bass meunière is the talk of the town. Splash has more than 450 bottles of wine, ensuring you can find the perfect accompaniment for your meal. One of their two sommeliers will be happy to offer a recommendation. They even offer classes.
