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.
Born and raised in the South Sound, Cody has come home to Olympia after spending the majority of the past decade tending bar and managing restaurants in Seattle. A six year veteran of Tom Douglas Restaurants, managing Palace Kitchen and Cuoco, as well as Capitol Hill's Single Shot, he is also Seattle's only two-time Woodford Reserve Master of the Manhattan winner and has studied with the Court of Master Sommeliers.
Cody says you'll expect a constantly evolving seasonal cocktail menu using local ingredients, and that he loves to push boundaries and expand palates. You may also see him around town singing and playing guitar from time to time.
