First Look: Narwhal Oyster Truck in Seattle

Jay Friedman 1 comment

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

Drinks Stevie Stacionis 2 comments

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... Enter: the northern California coast, where there are fresher-than-fresh oysters available just footsteps away, doled out by the bag-full with little accompaniment besides sunshine and a shucking knife.

Crab, Salmon Jerky, Smoked Mussels, and More Bites from the Oregon Coast

Erin Zimmer 2 comments

We found many baskets of fish and chips and a fantastic cup of clam chowder while cruising along the Oregon coast, but that wasn't all. There were smoked mussels, steamed oysters from Netarts Bay, salmon jerky, and many more delicious bites from the sea. More

Food Film Fest: The Lowcountry Oyster Roast

New York Jessica Leibowitz Post a comment

Last night, the NYC Food Film Festival wrapped up in the most delightful way: with a Lowcountry Oyster Roast blowout on a Brooklyn rooftop. For what's better after a screening about South Carolina oysters than grabbing an oyster knife and getting to work? More

Chicago The Serious Eats Chicago Team 2 comments

We may be far from either coast, but Chicago is in the midst of a love affair with the oyster, as almost every new restaurant touts its fresh oyster program. But oysters require constant care and attention, and the best places we found dedicate serious resources to doing things right. Here are some of our favorites. More

Serious Eats Visits the Blue Island Oyster Company, Long Island

New York The Serious Eats Team 7 comments

Most oysters have place-referencing names. Island Creeks (after the freshwater outlet in Duxbury Bay, MA); Otter Coves (from the Puget Sound); you get the picture. But the Blue Island Oyster Company on the Long Island Sound chose a New York icon, the naked dude in Times Square, as its oyster namesake. We visited their oyster farm; come take a look! More

A Sandwich a Day: Fried Oysters at Brooklyn Crab

New York Max Falkowitz 3 comments

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. And the seafood will not change your life. But if you arrive with low expectations, few plans, are willing to hang out with a pitcher or two of cheap beer while you wait for your table (or if you have one of those young children), you can have a lovely time here, and a surprisingly tasty fried oyster sandwich.

Bar Bites: Irish Stout Granita with Raw Oysters

Marvin Gapultos 2 comments

A cold pint of stout and a plate of freshly shucked oysters may seem like an odd coupling at first. But because the waters around England and Ireland were once brimming with oysters, the beer and bivalve pairing became just as natural (though less well-known) as corned beef and cabbage, fish and chips, or Wills and Kate. More

Irish Stout Granita with Raw Oysters

Serious Eats Marvin Gapultos Post a comment

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. More

Bar Eats: Cornelius

New York Nancy Huang 1 comment

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
