Indulge your desire to five-star flavor with 24 big, luscious oysters shipped directly from the docks of Maine. Nothing says, "five-star dining" like fresh, luscious oysters. And when it comes to fresh oysters, Maine is known to be home of the absolute finest.
Raised by growers all along our coastlines, the Maine oyster is coveted for its punchy, briny “liquor” and robust flavor, and is considered by many to be the best found anywhere in the country - perhaps even the world.
The reason? Maine is ideal for oyster growth. Our waters are clean, cold, and nutrient rich, with strong tidal flows which move over the oyster beds, keeping them fed and healthy. Maine oyster harvesters take pride in the care and handling of their “farms” - and the result shines through.
We are huge fans of Maine oysters sourced from the nearby Damariscotta River, raised near the tidal mouth of the river where it meets the sea. The Damariscotta has been home to the Eastern Oyster for centuries (piles of middens - oyster shells - still exist from the Native Americans who flocked there to enjoy the bounty).
Harvested at 3-4 years, these oysters come straight out of the water and right to our dock for absolute pristine freshness. These are big, large-sized “cocktail” oysters. They are absolute perfection when served chilled on the half shell with a kiss of lemon or dollop of spicy cocktail sauce.
