Oyster Town, USA

May 03, 2012

How do you know when you’re in Oyster Town, a place where oysters permeate the entire culture? Here are some of the signs to look for:

Living oyster reefs exposed at low tide…

 

Piles of shell at processing plants on the edge of town…

 

Making oyster shell the preferred mulch in town…

 

A ridiculous abundance of oyster bars…

 

All serving fat, fresh oysters with minimal fuss…

 

 

At minimal prices…

 

 

And, undoubtedly the most important sign of all, oystermen working the waters by hand…

 

Where is Oyster Town? There’s only one place in the country where such an earthly paradise could exist? Any guesses?

Look for my complete rundown next week…

  1. Hi Rowan….Oyster town has got to be a place on the gulf that I sure would love to visit. I’m got to cheat and find it through Google.

    If you haven’t heard of the Matunuck Oyster Bar which is about 4 miles from my house here in RI you should put it on your “hit list”. I’m hooked on their grilled oysters with a touch of their compound butter added at the end of the cooking process. One of my sons has cooked all over this hemisphere and says the place is top notch.
    Regards,
    Tim

    Gulf Coast…is correct! Now specifically?

    Matunuck Oyster Bar has been recommended to me by several people. Sounds like an excuse for a summer road trip!
