DESCRIPTION

Chef Renee Erickson's Ballard neighborhood standout The Walrus and the Carpenter excels with oysters, heading an excellent menu of small plates that has included grilled sardines, manila clams, steak tartare and duck terrine.

From the restaurant's website:
"Award-winning Chef Renee Erickson (Boat Street Café/Boat Street Pickles) has partnered with business manager Jeremy Price and developer Chad Dale to realize her longtime vision for an oyster bar. It makes perfect sense then that she would do it in her own neighborhood. The Walrus and the Carpenter blends the elegance of France with the casual comfort of a local fishing pub."

"Besides the bivalves, there's smoked trout, clams and mussels and — hell yes! — Utz potato chips. That's our kind of fish and chips."
