Plymouth Rock

These descendents of the original colony of oysters discovered by the Pilgrims may be the tastiest wild oysters left on the East Coast. Threateningly briny, they are also lively and clean and wonderfully chewy. Note the goosefoot pattern of raised ridges on the green shell—sign of an oyster exposed to fluctuating tides and temperatures in its youth.
