Pickled Oysters (cross-post)
Apologies if I'm not supposed to do this, but I posted this on the Craving board yesterday and didn't get any response, so I'm reposting here in hopes of getting some more eyeballs:
I'm not sure this is actually a craving, since I've never tasted them, but I was just reading some NYC culinary history and all the talk about pickled oysters made me curious (apparently they were ubiquitous around here until the mid-19th century and then went out of fashion). Anyone know where I can get some in NYC?
From a cursory google, it looks like they may have been a special at cookhouse at one point but I don't see them on the menu.
Thanks! That picture and description makes me want to try them even more. I was hoping for locally produced ones, but maybe I'll order from Hama Hama once I exhaust other options. I guess I'd better just call around to gourmet stores and oyster bars-- I can't believe nobody in this whole city carries them.
