A while back we posted on The Whale Wins, a restaurant from Seattle culinary star Renee Erickson. Today we’re taking a look at Narwhal, Erickson’s oyster bar on wheels.

N.B.: It’s our Block Party issue, and every day this week, we’ll be spotlighting an inspired food or drinks business on wheels.

Above: Narwhal operates out of a 1960 Divco dairy van turned food truck, which appears at the Queen Anne Farmers Market and other locales around the city.

Above: The menu includes fried oysters, smoked trout salad, and celery soda.

Above: Making the rounds, cafe seating included.

Above: Seattle artist Curtis Steiner came up with the swirly scripted logo.
