Check Out these Gorgeous Oysters from Brooklyn Oyster Riot
Oyster Week is going strong throughout New York City all week long, and on September 11 it kicked off with the Brooklyn Oyster Riot, an opportunity for guests to not only sample some of the world’s finest, freshest oysters, but to meet the oyster farmers themselves and learn about the world’s most popular bivalve.
Ten different vendors showcased their wares in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s gorgeous Palm House, surrounded by the garden’s well-manicured beauty. Here are five of the event’s finest offerings:
Located on Long Beach Island, New Jersey, these Shore Point oysters became available for direct sale to restaurants on September 1.
Grown in the Delaware Bay, these oysters have been enjoyed since before European settlers arrived.
These classic Kumamoto oysters hailed from Shelton, Washington.
All the way from Coromandel, New Zealand, these oysters had a very deep cup and were firm, plump, and briny.
Grown in the Block Island Sound, these oysters were firm, sweet, and salty.
