Oyster Bash Tix and Weekend Specialties — October 9, 2014 October 09 2014 Posted in

 

Our annual Oyster Bash on October 18th at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden is right around the corner.  Each year oyster lovers spend the afternoon hob-nobbing with our favorite oyster growers who will be on hand shucking and serving their delicious delicacies, and enjoy dishes from some of New York’s most renowned seafood chefs, including Cull & Pistol, as they offer their take on their favorite oyster preparations.  While the event is sold out, we have two tickets which will be offering at random to anyone who likes or shares the highlighted post at the top of our Lobster Place Facebook Page.

Blood Clams and Weekend Specialties — October 2, 2014 October 01 2014 Posted in

 

Those clams you see are Blood Clams and the red coloring is due to high levels of hemoglobin.  Make no mistake from their appearance, Blood Clams are deliciously crisp and are not as briny as littlenecks.  Fortunately for you, we managed to get our hands on a small amount of these succulent clams straight from the Cape for the weekend.  Raw bar keeps getting better.

Belon Oysters and Weekend Specialties — September 25, 2014 September 25 2014 Posted in

 

Maine Flat oyster (aka Belons) season has opened up this week and we should expect to see decent supply through the holidays.  A few quick notes about the Flats:  Maine Flats are a species (O. Edulis) originally from the Belon river estuary in France (hence the name Belons) that came to the eastern coast of the states in the last century.  Technically speaking, only oysters from the Belon river can be labeled “Belons,” similar to sparkling wine outside of the Champagne region.  Both “Flats” and “Belons” get thrown around in the U.S. though.  The oysters we source are wild and from a hard shell clam fishery in Harpswell, ME.  The Flat’s flavor profile is quite unique.  Instead of the wallop of brine most often associated with Gulf of Maine oysters (C. Virginica), the Flats open with metallic overtones, and finish with a mineral laced flourish.
