The Walrus and the Carpenter; Seattle

Named for the oyster poachers in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, chef-owner Renee Erickson’s Ballard neighborhood oyster bar specializes in Washington state bivalves. The selection constantly changes, but often includes sweet oysters from Samish Bay, and Hama Hama oysters from the mid-Hood Canal. A nice touch: The trays arrive with a cheat sheet identifying each oyster.
