Named for the oyster poachers in Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass, this Ballard oyster bar outfitted with stools and high tables specializes in Washington State bivalves. The selection is constantly in flux, but often includes Samish sweet oysters from Samish Bay and Hama Hama oysters from Mid Hood Canal. A nice touch: The trays arrive with a cheat sheet identifying each oyster. There are other locally harvested seafood and fish dishes as well as a short list of French-inspired salads and starters.
