Catered Raw Bar in Bay Area?

Does anyone have a recomendation on a caterer who can provide a "turnkey" raw bar for a party next weekend? Two or three types of oysters & accessories; 2-3 hours on a Saturday evening.

I have followed a couple of dead end leads of freelancers from the wholesale oyster markets.

Any pointers appreciated.

  1. Hog Island Oysters will cater...they will bring an oyster set-up, a shucker, and the like...[I'm not sure what you mean about "accessories"]...I went to a reception a couple of weeks ago where Hog Island was one of the food stations--it was very good, and very busy...

    Check the Hog Island website for details...

    1. I went to a party that was catered by Hog Island and was quite impressed by the food.

        When they're offering up two or three kinds of oysters and the grilled cheese sandwich cut into finger food size sticks, Hog Island is usually my favorite food station at an event.

          Usedd to do a lot of catering in the SF Bay Area and we always used Hog Island with great success...can't recommend them highly enough
