Bar Ferd’nand is the oyster-and-wine bar in the middle of the neato hangar-like Melrose Market. It’s run by Matt Dillon of Sitka & Spruce, which is just steps away; it seems set up as sort of a S&S holding pen, but you can make an excellent supper of the snacks both off- and on-the-half-shell found here.
