Two Lights Seafood & Oyster is slated to open later this month on North Avenue in Old Town from the owners of Tortoise Supper Club. Pegged for a June 18 opening inside a newly built space at 227 W. North Avenue, customers will find Nashville hot oysters, lobster rolls served in Asian-style bao buns, and the curiously named “Pow Bang” shrimp (pickled ginger, sweet chili sauce, sesame seeds). A news release mentioned a variety of highballs with backs including a winter-infused gin with a root beer back.

The raw bar is the center of attention with crudos, four types of oysters (served with three different sauces) and more. Tortoice’s executive chef Aaron Browning created Two Lights’ menu. Other dishes include a Goose Point fried oyster bun.

It’ll also serve a few large-format drinks. That could be useful for groups heading or returning from Second City or Zanies, both located a few blocks away on Wells Street. The drink list will also include a chilled radish-infused vodka beet with a Kvass back.

Owners Keene and Megan Addington say their time in Maine have shaped the ideas behind Two Lights. They’ll share more information on Old Town’s newest addition in the coming weeks.
