The oysters we tried Belon, left, and Blue Island No. 9, right.We visited for lunch where the menu is heavy on what could be considered small plates and shareables with only a small section devoted to entrees. Fine by us because that meant we could try a variety of things and not stuff ourselves to the gills . The dinner menu offers plenty of shareables but has more items that could be considered entrees like a Scottish Salmon Oscar, Paella, and grilled fish.
