'Oysters' on Serious Eats

First Look: Narwhal Oyster Truck in Seattle

The menu board listed four food items, including a version of the fried oysters that have been earned national acclaim at The Walrus and the Carpenter oyster bar. Soup with seafood, trout salad, and toast with a fish smear are typical of the menu items you can expect to see if you can harpoon a visit with Narwhal. More

┼Żlahtina: The Perfect Under-$20 Wine For Oysters

I'd been hiding this quirky, slender, delicious looking bottle in the fridge for a special occasion. I don't mean a fancy dinner or holiday, or even an evening with important company. I mean a special occasion...

A Sandwich a Day: Fried Oysters at Brooklyn Crab

Here's the thing about Brooklyn Crab: it's the Epcot Center version of crab shacks. The waits are long. The service is questionable. Parents bring their young children.

Irish Stout Granita with Raw Oysters

A cold pint of stout and a plate of freshly shucked oysters may seem like an odd coupling at first. But the dry bitterness and roasty malt flavors of a stout play very well against the sweet and briny flavors of a fresh oyster--even more so when the stout is frozen and flaked into an icy granita that can be spooned over the fresh oyster just before slurpage.

Bar Eats: Cornelius

Prospect Heights bar Cornelius has made a name for itself with its famous $1 oyster happy hour, offered on weekdays until 8 PM and weekends until 6 PM. But given that sustenance can't be had on Blue Point oysters and wine specials alone, Cornelius has a number of other dishes to satisfy post-work cravings. More
