Short description: Oysters are hot right now. With that in mind, restaurateur Frank DePasquale, the man behind chic Italian restaurants and nightclubs Splash, Umbria and Ocean Club at Marina Bay, among others, is refocusing the concept of his North End coastal Italian restaurant, Mare Natural, into an oyster bar. Selections from throughout the Northeast are highlighted, and with special emphasis on the fruits of the sea, the raw bar is the focus. Makes sense — Italy has a pretty long coastline.
