Style Weekly’s Matthew Freeman has says that Pearl Raw Bar is a solid place for seafood:
On one evening’s visit, I overhear neighboring diners comment that Pearl’s menu is the same as the company’s Carytown spot, the Water Grill. They’re partly right. Many dishes appear on both menus, including buffalo fried oysters and cast iron filet mignon. But Pearl’s offers far greater variety. Including sliders, sandwiches, wide-ranging hors d’oeuvres and entrees, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll find something whether you’re out with picky children, conservative meat-and-potatoes-loving grandparents, or more adventurous foodies.
