Oysters and Pearls

Celebrate our 30th anniversary with a dozen (or two) oysters. The traditional gift for this anniversary is the pearl, so what better way to mark the occasion than with the briny bivalves that make them? Below, a few of our favorite ways to eat ’em: roasted, raw, and fried to crisp perfection. Just don’t forget the Champagne! 

Oysters Rockefeller
James Beard’s version of this iconic dish calls for fennel, herbs, buttery bread crumbs, and Pernod.
