Oyster Bar adds a new location to Sacramento, serving loaded seafood plates and more

Oyster Bar is expanding from Natomas and will soon serve its seafood and Southern-inspired plates at a second location in Citrus Heights.

The new spot will be at 7084 Auburn Blvd., according to the restaurant’s Instagram post on Monday. It’ll share a plaza with Chando’s Tacos, Starbucks, Haya Sushi and Little Caesar’s Pizza.

The restaurant was not immediately available to comment on opening day.

Owner Duy Pan opened the Natomas restaurant in September, after creating May May Catering, a Vietnamese seafood catering service based in south Sacramento’s Little Saigon.

Oyster Bar was featured in The Bee’s “Best restaurant meals I ate around Sacramento in August” by food reporter Benjy Engel.

“The bright North Natomas seafood bar is full of splurge items, from caviar service ($15-$30 for a half-ounce) to market-price crab, lobster and shrimp to seafood towers ($70-$182),” Engel writes.

Oyster Bar’s menu includes pan roast, a creamy tomato stew with lobster, shrimp, dungeness crab, chicken and adouille; etoufeee, a Cajun-Creole gravy loaded with seafood; raw oysters; shrimp spaghetti; and crustacean French roll.

Prices range from $9, from the taster menu, $10 for sides and $15.95 for appetizers. Entrees start at $23.
