This is an update to this post. The long-delayed new seafood restaurant ‘Whiskey & Oyster’ from owner ‘Mango’ Mike Anderson and the Homegrown Restaurant Group will be finally open in the Carlyle neighborhood of Alexandria,  Virginia Tuesday, May 21, 2019.  The restaurant will be open for limited hours during dinner only for the first week during a soft opening.

Located at 301 John Carlyle Street in the old Pizzeria Venti space, this will be the first seafood joint in Carlyle,  and the restaurant will offer a variety of raw oysters, seafood choices, and a really long bar in a 4,400 square foot space. This is the third joint to open in Carlyle from Mike, his wife Donna and business partner Bill Blackburn in Carlyle (Sweet Fire Donna’s and Tequila & Taco are the others).

Whiskey & Oyster will have seating for 100 inside and 50 outside for lunch and dinner serving from 11:00 a.m. to Midnight daily. Similar to Yates Pizza Palace, there will be a handmade large-group table, as well. The main dining area has some really cool sea-inspired artwork lining the walls.

Whiskey & Oyster offers FREE parking in the 330 John Carlyle Square garage after 5 p.m. and all day Saturday and Sunday.  You can get real-time parking information for Carlyle here.

The Alexandria, Virginia Chamber of Commerce attended an invitation-only grand opening last night. Here are some photos from inside the joint. What do you think?
