The raw oysters are clearly the main draw, and the menu changes depending on the season — sometimes the day. "We feature oysters from all over — from Virginia, from the Gulf Coast, from South Carolina," Millsaps says. Don't worry, though, if oysters aren't your thing. There's a changing menu of fresh seafood based on what's delivered to the restaurant the night before. The "Mussels and Brussels" dish began as a nightly special and quickly evolved to a staple and fan favorite. The chef mixes fresh Prince Edward Island mussels with local Brussel sprouts, chorizo and a sofrito sauce containing tomatoes and capers. Want to drink your oyster? Another popular choice is an oyster shooter that mixes pepper vodka, horseradish and a spicy cocktail sauce. It's so popular that it was featured on the Food Network. "Yeah, people tend to talk a lot about those," Millsaps says. Located on a corner next to Dean & Deluca, Pearlz is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday. The kitchen closes at 10 each evening, but raw oysters are available until closing. Served only on Sundays, the cioppino seafood stew features a house-made lobster broth with clams, mussels, shrimp and the fresh catch of the day.
