The Lobster Place presents The Oyster Bash at The Biergarten at The Standard


On October 12th, during the New York City Wine & Food Festival, I attended The Lobster Place presents The Oyster Bash sponsored by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. Cooking Channel star and host of Hook, Line & Dinner, Ben Sargent, hosted the event, Part  of Local presented by The Corcoran Group at The Biergarten at The Standard - 848 Washington Street at Little West 12th Street. The Oyster Bash featured 9 of the most renowned seafood chefs, 5 artisanal oyster farmers and 11 different types of oysters. 

Of all the oysters I tasted, my favorite by far was the Chilled Oysters with Curried Tapioca Pearls and Thai Slaw by Chef David Burke and Chef Ed Cotton of Fishtail by David Burke. I enjoyed pairing the oysters with Mionetto 'IL' SPR!Z semi-sparkling wine. Another highlight of the bash was learning how to shuck an oyster with Forty North Oyster Farms!
