Oyster lover needs help

NMculinary May 11, 2012 09:20 AM

Will be in Seattle 5/30 and need a sit down place at lunch to down an oyster, or two, or three... Spending the AM at the Market and have a 2:00 pm reservation at the new Chihuly Museum. Can't walk far due to arthritis but woud use taxi if necessary. Hear very mixed reviews for Watson's.

Looking for freshness and good value for price. Since it is the end of May, what varieties are best in this marginal season? Hood Canal?

    Try lunch at The Brooklyn. Their oysters are very fresh and it is not far from The Market or the new Chihuly Glasshouse.

      We had some Penn Cove oysters yesterday and, while they weren't at their very best, they were still quite good.

        Go to Taylor Shellfish in the Melrose Market on Capitol Hill

        They will drop knowledge about which oysters are the best right now

        Have a glass of Rose with them
