Yea? or Nay?

I love me some oysters on the half-shell. Had some of the best I've ever eaten last night at Gotham... perfectly meaty, but not rubbery at all, and super bracing in that way that raw oysters are. Delicious!

I also like 'em dredged in cornmeal and pan-fried. Mmmmmm. I want some oysters right now!

I probably eat oysters once a week on average.

Alas, the best oyster joint in town CLOSED. It's awful.

Man, I need more women in my life that would lament the passing of an oyster joint.

Hell fucking yeah. I could eat them everyday.

You gotta go find yerself a mermaid.

Oysters- blech! I think of them as sea-loogeys. I'm told Pal Shanty's has the best fried ones in town tho. Can't verify cause I won't touch the lil' buggers.

haven't been to alberta oyster house yet but ate at dan and louis' oyster bar about a month ago. we got a sampler platter and it was really fucking good. we really loved the kamamoto's. they were smaller and tastier than the yaquinas. its a cool place to grab a cocktail downtown whilst trying to avoid the crowds.

The best kind of women...

I went to this place in Birmingham, AL (of all places!) that had about a dozen different kind of oysters from a dozen different places. It was just weird, and intimidating. I just want big fat juicy ones you can bite a coupla times, then slide down your throat!

yeah, I don't know of anyplace here that has anything besides gulf oysters. it wouldn't fly. nobody is going to pay more than $9 for a dozen oysters.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 1:38 am
My record is 2 1/2 dozen at that place that used to be next to the levee out St. Charles at...Carondelet? Ten cents apiece happy hour...many moons ago.

That's one of the good things about living and eating in the NW: easy access to fresh seafood all the time.

Here, if a place has oysters, they usually offer at least two varieties, if not four or five, from different spots all over Oregon and Washington. Some of the best are from Hood Canal and the Olympic peninsula up in Washington.

Alsia- will you marry me?

I will, Joe. If you can get my name right.
I think I'd like living where there's easy access to oysters.

Damn this keyboard!

It's called Cooter Browns.... and I saw Sonya Thomas eat 46 dozen oysters. It was ugly.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 2:27 am
That's it, Cooter Browns. Damn, looks like I'm just a poser. 46...that's...incredible. I'm in awe.

Joe, "keyboard malfunctions" are always a credilble excuse.

Tuesday nights $5 or $6 pitchers of Shiner/Abita......
Oysters have always been good and cheap there.....at one time the rest of the food was good too....that was a long time ago.....

True, but Oscar had a well-known aversion to anything poon-tangy.

And also-

Alisa, my sincere appologies.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 4:34 pm
I am a fan of the larger ones myself, esp. when eating raw or breaded/fried for a sandwich. People out here are just figuring out you can fry oysters.

Oysters Florentine or Rockefeller?

Rockefeller pour moi.

I'm all about some oysters.

You ever get the "oyster" of the turkey at Thanksgiving? That's the coolest piece of turkey meat ever. I just found out about it last November.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 4:50 pm
Aw, Joe...ain't no thang. Oysters and flattery forgive typos anyday!
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 5:06 pm
Who wants to bet on whether Joe and Alisa are gonna hump?
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 5:14 pm
You are a scoundrel.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 6:01 pm
Oysters with chilled vodka.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 7:28 pm
I sho miss the 2-2-2 at Anderton's already.
Posted: Feb 11, 2006 7:33 pm
I too like the bigger ones fer frying/po boy fixin. They seem to hold up better under all that stress... crunchy outside, but creamy on the inside. They tend to get kinda tough if they're too small.
Posted: Feb 12, 2006 4:09 am
