National Oyster Day at Walrus & The Pearl
On August 5th, to celebrate National Oyster Day, Chef Stephen Jones treated guests to a wonderful 3-course menu for $25 at his 11-seat raw bar, Walrus & The Pearl at DeSoto Market.
We started with an amuse of crunchy kimchi and pickled melon, before moving on to silky hamachi with roasted tomato vinaigrette, 5 different types of expertly-shucked oysters (with optional pairings), and bigeye poke spiked with yuzu and Sriracha.
Chef Stephen Jones and master shucker Pete.
The oysters were so good, that for "dessert" we ordered more: A half dozen Misty Point, 2 Chunus, and 2 Coromandel.
