Favorite Maine oysters

Glidden Point oysters – deep cups and briny, delicious flavor we love!

At a recent trip to The Oyster Bar at Grand Central everyone at the table got the same tasting platter and we all tried each oyster in tandem – a really fun way to sample the season’s offerings – although, to our surprise, the Malpeques and Summersides did not make the group’s top four. Glidden Point, Deep Bay, East Beach and – new to us all – French Kiss oysters became our new list of favorites – each in it’s own way turgid, briny and perfectly delicious!

    I can’t think of a better way to spend a summer afternoon than slurping back some ice chilled oysters… I have tried the “French Kiss” oysters (once!) but I have not seen them in many places. They are at the top of my list too!
