Today’s the day along North Avenue as Two Lights Seafood & Oyster surfaces in Old Town from the owners of Tortoise Supper Club. The bar, on the ground floor of a new condo building at the corner of North Avenue and Wieland Street, is an oasis for fresh seafood and cocktails inside a relaxed space. Two Lights is chill enough to bring the family during the day, but the drinks are strong enough for hang out when the sun sets.

Diners will find oysters, a lobster stew made with green curry, and steak tartare on the menu. Ten signature drinks come in two sizes. There’s also a large-format drink for sharing called the “Mezkiller.”

Owners Keene and Megan Addington wanted to keep the space in line with Old Town’s classic feel. Keene Addington is certainly familiar with the neighborhood. He was the CEO of Flat Top Grill. The make-your-own stir fry chain opened its first restaurant back in 1995 just two blocks west of Two Lights on North Avenue.

Take a tour through Two Lights below. Old Town has a new spot for classic seafood.
