Oyster and Lobster Stew at The Regency Bar & Grill

A seaside vacation for the palate

Talk about a transporting dish: The oyster and lobster stew ($20) at The Regency Bar & Grill pulls diners right out of the Upper East Side and plops them on a sunny New England beach. So much so that you can practically hear the rushing tide and feel the soft sand between your toes.

Executive chef Dan Silverman is responsible for the gorgeously silken combination, holding all of the bisquey luxury of lobster and the briny sparkle of oysters. Fava beans add texture and freshness; earthy chanterelles bring a little turf to all of that surf; and pickled ramps lend just the right amount of acid and complexity.

The Loews Regency unveiled its retooled rooms and restaurant after an extensive renovation this past January. Silverman rode the wave uptown after years of helming Meatpacking’s The Standard Grill. He, and menu items such as a luxurious pan-roasted Dover sole with lemon, brown butter and parsley ($65) and a spiced duck breast with black barley, dried cherries and pistachios ($44), feel right at home in their new neighborhood. And diners will remain happy as a clambake with that stew, and the raw bar, while the summer shellfish season lasts.
