Celebrate National Oyster Day at Ocean Prime
August 5, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Looking to celebrate National Oyster Day in style this year? Ocean Prime invites you to enjoy half-price oysters all day long. In addition to their special you can also get half-off bottles of wine, as long as they are under $99.
Fun Facts For National Oyster Day
Some say that Casanova started his day with 50 oysters for breakfast.
There are over 100 species of true oysters, traditionally named for the body of water they are grown in.
Oysters take on the characteristics of the water they’re grown in making some more buttery or saltier than others.
There is no one “right” way to eat or serve oysters. It kind of reminds me of Forrest Gump; oysters on the half shell, raw oysters, smoked oysters, boiled oysters, baked oysters, fried oysters, roasted oysters, pickled oysters…it goes on and on.
Don’t buy into the myth that you should just let oysters slide down the back of your throat. Bite into them and enjoy that buttery, briny flavor.
Finding a pearl in an oyster is crazy rare. Only about one in 10k oysters will produce a pearl…and those oysters aren’t even bred for eating! It typically happens with human intervention.
Are you ready to get your oyster on? Make sure to get into Ocean Prime to celebrate National Oyster Day!
