(Happy Hour Monday-Friday 4-7pm)
Olde Salts – Chincoteague Bay, VA – $3.50 ea/$38.50 dozen
Oysters that are grown at the mouth of a river are always a special thing. Travis and Ryan Croxton grow these briney east coasters at that other famous US oyster haven, Chesapeake Bay. Definitely higher in brine, with a lighter body, they pair perfectly with some bubbly.
Yennicott Oysters- North Fork, Southold, NY – $3 ea/$33 dozen
Meg Dowe is a 10th generation oyster farmer and keeps the family business strong with these briny little beauties from Little Peconic Bar. They finish with just a slightly sweet note as fresh as an ocean breeze.
St Simon – Shipaggan, NB, Canada – $3.50 ea/$38.50 dozen
The cold waters off the New Brunswick coast means it takes 4-5 years for these oysters to even get to this size, but they start with that wonderful East Coast brine and an almost sweet finish.
Samish Pearls – Puget Sound, WA – $3.50 ea/$38.50 dozen
Grown in one of the most famous areas for oysters in Washington, these small oysters are beach dwellers from the Samish Bay. They are Crassostrea gigas, so a completely different species than our East Coasters, and have that distinctive cucumber note to their small firm body.
