Saturday, we went to Barley Mac's inaugural Oyster Fest. The new Rosslyn restaurant hopes to put on the all-you-can-eat oyster affair annually. We snapped IBM’s Eryn Nutshell, Gaylord’s Curtis Robinson, MedStar’s Jessica Barth, AOL/Huffington Post’s Jeff Turner and Cvent’s Lauren Turner.
Guests enjoyed a sampling of the restaurant’s oysters Rockefeller, grilled oysters, fried po-boys, oyster stew, fried buffalo batter oysters and oyster ceviche. Here, Barley Mac co-owner Nick Cordero, GM Scott Hall, co-owner Mike Cordero and chef Jeremy Magnanelli.
From the bar, guests enjoyed specialty cocktails, white wines and whiskey. Here, GW’s Brittany Pagoda and IT technician Tyler Lewkovich.
The event also featured an oyster-eating contest, an oyster-shucking instruction station, a table for cigar rolling and live music from Tony Martirano. Here, Bulldog PR’s Meredith Hoffman, author Quin Woodward Pu and Social Tables’ Will Henry.
