Quickly becoming famous for its Oyster Bar, Lento features a half dozen oyster varieties on the menu nightly Mon.-Sat.  Like all fresh oysters, these should be eaten raw with just a squeeze of lemon.  Purists think putting any cocktail sauce on is offensive to the farmers. It’s just covering up their hard work.  On Tuesday evenings it’s Dollar Oyster Night –  all raw oysters on the half-shell are a dollar a piece.  Belly up to the Oyster Bar at Lento for fresh varieties flown in daily.   Reservations are suggested and appreciated.
