Quonset Points

Dec 10, 2007

quonsets-web-2.jpgQuonset Points, the classic Narragansett Bay oyster, are at their peak of flavor right now and worth seeking out. The ones I just had were brinier than I remembered Quonsets being, with the same deep cups they always have. The bottom shells had an extraordinary orangeish color that I’ve never seen on an oyster before—no doubt due to whatever algae is thriving in the bay. It makes the Quonsets unmistakable, and seems a guarantee of that full flavor. Thanks to Jeb Wallace-Brodeur for the photo here.
