The Fat Radish kids' oyster bar features Phil Winsler's mid-century Europe- and Americana-inflected design, which includes an "Airstream-inspired bar" and tables silk-screened with game boards. There's a built-in piano where performers will show several times a week, and requestable vintage records will play the rest of the time—including the occasional track from Blues legend Leadbelly, i.e., Huddie William Ledbetter, himself.

The food menu (overseen by Ben Towill and executed by chef Nicholas Wilber) offers East and West Coast oysters and bar snacks including a beet tarte tatin and a Maine-mussels pot pie with leeks and Heritage smoked bacon. Meanwhile, Colin Asare-Appiah (Ruschmeyer's) has crafted seasonal cocktails like the Basil Brush (gooseberry, basil, elderflower, and Brooklyn Gin) or a Toasted Almond White Russian.
