Where to go: Blupoint Oyster House
Address: 5858 N. College Ave., Suite D, Indianapolis
What to get: Oysters on the half shell
Anna’s take: Blupoint Oyster House is nestled in a little building on College Avenue in Broad Ripple. I visited the bar during a family and friends’ event, so it offered a special menu not typically offered to customers, but there are several things customers should be on the lookout for when they visit the oyster house.
First, my opinion is the best way to eat oysters is on the half shell. Add a squeeze of lemon and a dash of hot sauce. I love the salty, briny, pure ocean taste of consuming raw oysters out of the shell. It’s part of the experience. There’s a great description of each of Blupoint’s oyster varieties on its website, blupoint.com. Prices vary. If you’re not up to trying oysters on the half shell, I suggest the squid ink bucatini ($14), which features black ink squid pasta with a lemon cream sauce.
Blupoint is definitely a spot I’d like to visit when the COVID-19 pandemic ends so I don’t have to worry about the tight spaces. It’s cozy and a great space for a before-dinner cocktail and oyster snack.
