For my bday back in August, the BF and I made reservations at Ruxbin, in Noble Square. The restaurant recently began taking reservations which made it easy for us to get a table in the tiny restaurant. When we arrived on a Tuesday night, every table was taken (no surprise). The restaurant's decor is pretty awesome--everything is recycled. In fact, the seat I sat on was made out of seat belts.
The BF and I started out with a few appetizers. The first was the oyster trio (it just so happened to be National Oyster Day). Each oyster was prepared very differently. From left to right we had one with apple mignonette, one with sambal pickled ginger, and then one with wild rice and pork belly and smoked on applewood. The last one was awesome because it arrived with a glass dome to keep in the smokey scent until you were ready to eat it. These oysters put plain raw oysters to shame.
