Monmouth County Oyster Bar Named Best in America
A Monmouth County oyster bar has been named one of the best in the U.S.!
Asbury Park beat out many well-known oyster location like New Orleans, Portland (Maine and Oregon) and, of course, New York.
We already know why APOB is tops, but check out the glowing review from Thrillist:
Frankly, this sleek, airy, intentionally rustic oyster bar that sprouted in the midst of Asbury Park's trendy renaissance -- located in the heart of the boardwalk's historic convention hall, no less -- could initially be dismissed as an overpriced cash grab aimed at a new wave of tourists. But, as its inclusion makes obvious, it's not. The Asbury Park Oyster Bar has all the makings of an eventual institution, highlighted by its raw bar selections: namely, the eponymous, daily sourced oysters. There's nothing particularly "fancy" about what they do here with the raw fare. But they've gained a reputation on the Jersey shore as having some of the best oysters in the Garden State. It's easy to believe in the future of fast-changing Asbury Park. And it's even easier to believe in that future with places like the Asbury Park Oyster Bar.
