First Look: Blue Island Oyster Bar Opens Next Week in Cherry Creek

Blue Island Oyster Bar, a new casual venture from the team behind Humboldt Farm, Fish and Wine — and one of our most anticipated fall openings — debuts on September 22 in Cherry Creek. Billed as a “dock-to-dish” concept, the lively spot emphasizes fresh fish and seafood, including a raw bar. "Our approach is simple: create honest food and drinks and serve them in a relaxed environment. In short, Blue Island Oyster Bar is inspired by the oyster farmers and fisherman who have lived this way for generations," says executive chef DJ Nagle. Check out our slide show for a preview of some of the dishes.

2625 E. Second Ave.; 303-333-2462; Lunch and dinner daily, starting at 11 AM
