Brigg’s Oyster Company is shockingly good. We had no expectations from this small restaurant tucked away in the corner of the Suncoast Hotel and Casino, but Brigg’s Oyster Company surprised us at every turn. To begin with, this place is clean, very clean. Often times oyster bars have a lingering, if not overt, fishy smell that invades the nostril even at a distance. None of that is happening here. The kitchen and preparation areas are clearly visible from the restaurant and every surface is as clean as the day it was made. There is some serious teamwork going on in that cramped space and it shows in the quality of the food.
The oysters here are fresh and delicious with a selection of 3 varieties, including the house Louisiana Gold Band and two rotating varieties Kusshi, and Fanny Mae. You can mix and match any of their oysters on the half or full dozen plates. Our favorites were the Fanny Mae, with a thick, almost buttery savoriness that left us wanting more. The Louisiana Gold were large and delicate in flavor, while the Kusshi were small and loud, with a hint of seaweed and ocean greens in the palate. Brigg’s Oyster Company also has a small sushi menu, so we ordered the Red Rose roll, a spicy tuna roll topped with ahi tuna, that was perfectly fresh and was presented beautifully.
Our entree, a special order not available on the menu, was the shrimp and crab pasta recommended by Bobby, one of the friendly chefs in the kitchen. Normally served with bowtie pasta, it was prepared with linguini instead at our request. The cream sauce was delicate with a touch of sweet from the fresh cream, butter, and sundried tomatoes. There was a large portion of succulent, sweet crab meat, and the shimp were cooked perfectly.
Brigg’s Oyster Company is an overall great value for the high quality food and service. An older couple from Phoenix sitting near by told us they make sure to stop here every trip to Las Vegas. We will definitely be back!
