B + G Oyster Invitational

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

The First Annual Oyster Invitational at B + G Oysters in the South End was a total success. I had fun being a judge and sitting next to the world’s fastest oyster shucker, ( worldwide champeen from Florida to Ireland, and still counting”)  who confessed that he wouldn’t eat a raw oyster if his life depended on it. He’s not a priss. He will eat raw scallops, shrimp if he’s caught it himself. His brother, a very busy lobsterman,  “pulls up mountains of them every single day and has never tasted a lobster.”   Great presentations –riffs on the classic raw bar — from B + G, Neptune Oyster, No. 9 Park and Ohya.
