Super Duper Good Oysters

We’re a little giddy over our morning delivery of Island Creek Oysters. These guys are super duper good, but don’t just take our word for it…

In Sam Sifton’s final review for the NYT , he defines Per Se’s signature starter course Oysters and Pearls, containing Island Creek Oysters in each and every dish as the ‘metaphor of transubstantiation.’  Totally had to look that one up – clearly a result of a heathenistic childhood.

 “It combines a sabayon of pearl tapioca with Island Creek oysters (small, marble-shaped, from Duxbury, south of Boston, fantastic) and a fat clump of sturgeon caviar from Northern California… they make a fine argument for the metaphor of transubstantiation.” Incredible photograph by Daniel Krieger for The New York Times above. And then there’s our not-so-fancy photo of our super duper good delivery.

We also have a new wine rotation of interesting New York vineyards, you can see the full list here.

See you upstate!
