Island Creek Oyster Bar's new sibling, Row 34, opened last night in Fort Point with the aim of being a "workingman's oyster bar" that reflects the history of its neighborhood, something a bit more casual and gritty than the upscale seafood destination that Island Creek has become. In that vein, the decor references oyster farms with materials like mesh and steel, and there's even a giant light installation made from galvanized steel oyster sorters. Diners will also see 100-year-old wooden beams original to the building, vintage subway tiles, and plenty of exposed brick. New York firm Bentel & Bentel designed the space; their all-star NYC roster includes Eleven Madison Park and Gramercy Tavern. Take a look inside.
