This cocktail party favorite consists of oysters on the half shell that are then topped with a rich, green butter and breadcrumb-based sauce and baked or broiled. When in New Orleans, head to Galatoire's for their rich and bubbly version — it is not to be missed. Oysters Rockefeller was thought to have been created in 1899 in New Orleans by Jules Alciatore, the son of the owner of one of the country’s oldest family-run restaurants, Antoine’s. The dish was named for John D. Rockefeller, one of the wealthiest men at the time, because of the richness of the sauce.
