Blossom Adds Intimate Raw Bar to East Bay

More oysters for all

Long-standing, wood-fired restaurant Blossom received an update at the beginning of the year, with new interior designs and a 10-seat raw bar up front. In what was once a private dining space now sits a sunny, Spanish-influenced bar with space to sup on fresh oysters, whole lobster, and Lowcountry boil. Chef Adam Close says that Blossom wanted to offer an affordable, beautiful spot with fresh seafood. The position of the bar, with a large window facing the East Bay Street sidewalk, immediately welcomes patrons into the space.

The hours for the oyster bar are Monday through Friday from 4:00 p.m. until close and, Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until close, and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until close.

As far as the other changes in the dining room go, architect David Thompson helped transition the space into something a bit more contemporary. The once-yellow walls are now a bright white and accents are a rich navy. There’s plenty of updated lighting fixtures and flooring. There’s still a few more accents on the way, but here’s a peek at Blossom’s new look.
