Cold Storage

The seafood centric restaurant tucked inside restaurant spot Swift & Sons, is going BIG in celebration of the food holiday with an "All Day Happy Hour". Guests can pair $7 rosé with $1 oysters from 11AM-11PM. Not enticing enough? For every 100 oysters shucked, a "Golden Oyster" will be plated, and the table that receives it will have their bill bought at that point. 


New to Bellemore is the Oyster Cocktail, a twist on shrimp cocktail served with fermented tomato, Worcestershire gelée & horseradish shaved ice. Guests can taste Chef Jimmy Papadopoulous's oyster dish when opting in for Bellemore's tasting menu.
