Oysters on the half shell in Richmond
Where do you get yours? I am having a serious craving. I actually spit one out into my napkin at Milepost 5 a few months ago. It was that bad. Can Can? Eh, they were OK - served lukewarm - I just don't like that.
I should mention I lived on the Gulf Coast for 5 years and am REALLY spoiled. But I don't think I am asking for much: fresh, plump, flavorful, briny and cold. Suggestions?
I did a search, but mainly came up with fried oysters (not that there's anything wrong with those).
Thanks, AMFM. I saw your post yesterday and we went for lunch today (when I have a craving, I mean it!).
They were pretty good. Next time, I might ask for them to be served on ice. Of course, the ideal way is to stand there and eat them as they are shucked - but that doesn't fly in all restaurants. ;-)
I liked the space, and my crab melt was delicious - crabby, good bread, and real gruyere. Nice menu - several things I want to go back and try. Great selection of wines by the glass, too. Nice bar. We'll be back. Thanks again.
