Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar at 222 Market is a space to sell and celebrate the local bounty of the tides. With a family friendly atmosphere and a 21+ bar section, it's a place to celebrate with friends and family. From a quick casual lunch or a romantic date night, THE Oyster Bar offers it all. Although there is emphasis on OUR own shellfish and other local VARIETIES, the Oyster Bar caters to the non-seafood loving patron too.
Chef Henri was born and raised in Los Angeles California but spent a good portion of his childhood in Mexico. His parents were both great cooks and his early inspiration to become a Chef came from their cooking and the Mexican flavors of his childhood. Before coming to Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar Chef Henri worked at Olympia Provisions co., Imperial and Aviary in Portland Oregon. Since moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2008, Chef Henri focused on working with the best Shellfish and Seafood available and built on his Mexican culinary heritage with a love of Northwest Ingredients and culture.
“As a long-time resident of Olympia (over 30 years!) I've been excited to see our town grow and thrive. I'm so grateful to have been part of the Chelsea Farms Oyster Bar team since the day we opened. I believe we are bringing something truly unique to the community, along with all of our partners and purveyors. Bigger things are on the horizon for both our little oyster bar and Olympia. When I get to sit down and enjoy our amazing menu, I love to order the Oyster Ceviche, paired with a crisp glass of sparkling rose.”
