Crawfish and Weekend Specialties 4.10.14

Crawfish/crayfish/crawdads/mudbugs, you get the point.  They’re here!  Weather is warming up nicely for a boil this weekend, so grab some corn, potatoes, sausage, a little seasoning, beers and let the good times roll. We have a sack coming in today and should have good supply throughout the weekend.  Its peak crawfish season now and supply should be good for the next 1-2 months.  Pre-orders are always appreciated!

PEI Oysters and Weekend Specialties 4.3.14

Oyster availability is always a bit sporadic this time of year as ice begins to thaw and weather impacts supply.  With that said, there are some brave folks up on Prince Edward Island that have been able to withstand three feet of ice, sub-zero temps and 40 mph winds to bring us some of PEI's finest.  Two particular oysters of note are the Daisy Bay (Left in pic) and the Pickle Point (right in pic).

The Daisy Bays hail from the northern side of PEI in Daisy Bay or the more familiar Gulf of St. Lawrence.  They have nice brine and good glucose levels this time of year and finish with a nice and sweet aftertaste.  Pickle Points are farmed in the Hope River on the northern side of the island and are your classic, high brine PEI oyster.  Pickels take a whopping 5+ yrs to grow out and have follow that high brine with a subtle sweet finish.  Both oysters will be regularly available in The Lobster Place and Cull&Pistol.

Daurenki Caviar and Weekend Specialties 3.27.14

Our caviar selection continues to expand based off of the excellent feedback we've received from all of you and we're pleased to share our newest addition to the list, Daurenki, from China.  The Daurenki is a serendipitus union of Acipenser Schrenki and Acipenser Dauricus Sturgeon species native to the pristine Amur river that goes through northern China and Russia on it's way to the Sea of Okhotsk.  This natural hybrid produces excellent caviar on par with Baerii and Osetra varieties.  It has medium, well defined pearls, light grey color with a golden hue and has a deliciously rich, nutty and buttery finish.  Available in 30g tins (about 1oz) for $100/ea.

Martha's Vineyard Bay Scallops 3.20.14

The northeastern bay scallop season has been a bit hit or miss this year, unfortunately leaving us with inconsistent supply and little opportunity to fully enjoy the relatively short season.  Lucky for you, we were able to get our hands on a limited amount this weekend, which will likely be the last time we see them until next fall.   If you're not instantly coming over here to buy some, check out this recipe of for caramelized bay scallops to get you inspired.
