Hi, I am author and travel expert Duke Tate here today to talk to you about New York oysters. Living and growing up near the Gulf Coast, I’ve eaten oysters my whole life. While traveling, I also enjoy tasting oysters from different regions all over the US. Little oysters, big oysters, briny, sweet, tart, like good wines. every oyster is just a little different. I’ve had them all. One of my favorite oyster experiences was eating at the Monterey Fish House where we dined on big Pacific oysters on the half that covered half the plate. Just 6 is all you need there. Another favorite place is Wintzell’s in Fairhope, Alabama. His sayings cover the walls, bits and pieces of wisdom about life. It’s life and oysters there. But my favorite oyster experience from the 38 states I’ve traveled through, is the Grand Central Oyster Bar in New York City. Located in Grand Central Station, the oyster bar oozes with old world charm due to the vaulted ceilings, tiled walls and the waiters’ New York manner. One thing that makes it truly unique is the amount of oysters to sample from, provided they are in season. The raw bar features 29 different shelled delicacies from all over the Eastern seaboard. Including the Grand Central Bar, The Voice has a pretty solid list of other oyster dives and bars alike to eat at in Gotham. Check it out.
