It was over 70 years ago that M.F.K. Fisher asked us to consider the oyster, yet the briny bivalve is just as popular as ever. Helmed by a set of mollusk masters from the hottest oyster bars from coast to coast, this dinner is destined to be an unforgettable event as rare as a pearl.

Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.​
