The art of the oyster at the ICA


It doesn’t get much better than this: Slurping fresh-shucked oysters looking at an expansive view of Boston Harbor with the Institute of Contemporary Art as backdrop. This summer, Island Creek Oyster Bar is dishing out sweet bivalves from Duxbury ($12 for 6, $20 a dozen) and a rotating selection of shrimp and crab claws on Friday nights at a pop-up raw bar at the museum’s waterfront plaza. (The first Friday of the month the raw bar is part of a ticketed museum event.) The bar is a preview of what’s to come: The Kenmore Square restaurant is gearing up to open Row 34, a second location that’s a short walk from the ICA. Enjoy the seafood and the sea breeze. Plenty more to come.  Island Creek Oyster Bar pop-up, Friday nights 5-9 p.m. through Aug. 30 at Institute of Contemporary Art, 100 Northern Ave., Boston, 617-478-3100, www.icaboston
