The "raw bar" in this case is the entire establishment, which has excelled at providing seafood for more than 20 years. During any given day of the week, Tom's will have seven or eight different kinds of raw oysters, from Virginia, Massachusetts, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, even British Columbia. They're sold by the oyster, each freshly shucked, by a staff that knows its seafood.
