Ever since N and I took a trip to Montreal last fall with Dave and Jess, I have been OBSESSED with oysters on the half shell. I literally get uncontrollable cravings, and have been known to pick restaurants solely on whether they offer oysters or not. Its really become quite the problem.
This past Friday, after months of planning, Jess and I cut out of work a little early to get some oysters at Blue Point. It was my first time there, and I feel like a complete idiot for having missed out on their happy hour for so long-- oysters are $1 a piece!! And these are some really high quality oysters too!!
Paired with a glass of crisp white wine, these oysters are sheer perfection. While both the mignonette and cocktail sauce were delicious, my favorite way to eat oysters are with a squirt of lemon and a liberal dash of tabasco. I may or may not have eaten 20. I may or may not have later developed heartburn on account of the aforementioned tabasco, but it was worth it.
Happy Hour at Blue Point runs 3:00- 6:30 pm weekdays, and 4:00 pm- 9:00 pm Sundays!! If you are an oyster lover, you should definitely check it out!!!
