At Oyster Club in Mystic, Connecticut, you’ll find lobster rolls, a raw bar, and other traditional New England seaside fare, but the adventurous will also be rewarded with modern flavor combinations, outside-the-box preparations, and boutique wines. Tonight Beard House diners will experience the whole package when chef James Wayman makes his return with dishes like Roasted Noank Oysters with Candy Roaster Squash, Smoked Pork Fat, and Housemade Cider Vinegar Syrup; Stonington Seafood Red Shrimp with Two-Month-Aged Habanero Ghee, Sweet Potatoes, and Housemade Rum Barrel–Aged Peach Vinegar; and Slow-Roasted 40-Day Dry-Aged Milk-Fed Veal Leg with Black Garlic Butter.
