Forthright Oyster Bar & Kitchen - Campbell
I want to thank The Table owners for giving us South Bay people multiple places to drink. And to drink well. Thank you, Justin, Lane, Eric (or is it Erik?), and, of course, Jimmy.
Jimmy, who runs the Forthright like it's his baby. This guy has got mad skills and dedication.
Jimmy is the reason why Forthright Oyster Bar & Kitchen is worth visiting. The soft-shell crab and cinnamon biscuits don't hurt either. It's reallyreally hard to find soft-shell crab around here and they fried it and seasoned it perfectly. And the cinnamon biscuits with peaches and vanilla ice cream just screamed perfect summer.
The only cons: the oysters we had didn't taste fresh and the mignonette needed work. Dishes are on the pricier side. If I had to pick, I'd rather go to The Table.
