New American food, craft cocktails, and the largest selection of raw oysters in the Capital Region. Named best brunch in the Capital Region!
Established in 2016.
Plumb Oyster Bar serves classic cocktails, farm to table dishes, and fresh oysters. Our owner, Heidi Knoblauch, left her successful academic career out of a love for the hospitality industry. We opened our doors at the end of 2016 and have been on the most fantastic ride of our lives ever since.
Before opening Plumb Oyster Bar, Heidi Knoblauch received her Ph.D. in History from Yale University. Her dissertation was on clinical photography in 19th and early 20th century America. After receiving her Ph.D. she taught at Bard College. She fell in love with Troy when she was a student at Emma Willard and oysters when she lived in Brooklyn, NY where she lived before returning to Troy.
