If you don’t usually think to have seafood for brunch, the crab cake Benedict at Island Creek Oyster Bar might change your mind. Instead of perching a poached egg atop an English muffin, the chef nestles it over a fresh jumbo lump crab cake, and then smothers the entire thing with Row 34 hollandaise.
The crab cake Benedict is just one way to start your Saturday at Island Creek Oyster Bar! You can also share a few seafood-centric starters, like the smoked salmon dip with grilled flatbread and the crispy oyster sliders with chili-lime aioli. For a balance of sweet and savory, add a basket of house-baked pastries or opt for the dulce de leche cinnamon toast for your main course. If you decide to come for happy hour or dinner instead, start with locally sourced oysters from the raw bar.
