Did you know that National Oyster Day is on Friday, August 5th? The celebration of the delightful saltwater delicacy, a recent favorite of ours, nearly fell off our food holiday radar!
Never fear; here are just a few places to indulge in our fair city.
Oysters & Bubbly at Red Owl Tavern
Enjoy the “Summer Citywide” at Red Owl Tavern in Old City. A dozen oysters and a bottle of sparkling wine for $33 — available from 4:30PM.
Oysters on the Half Shell at Ocean Prime
Enjoy Oyster Day Happy Hour at Ocean Prime between 4:30-6:30PM featuring $1 east and west coast varieties of oysters. Then enjoy $10 Cucumber gimlets and $10 glasses of Veuve Cliquot + Moet Imperial Whitestar. Both pair perfectly with oysters!
$1 Oysters at Pennsylvania 6
At Pennsylvania 6, enjoy $1 select oysters all night. They will also be serving three traditional oyster dishes including:
Oysters Rockefeller $17 — Parmesan cream, kale, garlic and bacon
Oyster chowder $10 — Potatoes, thyme, garlic, white wine and panchetta

FREE OYSTERS at The Fine Palate during 5-7PM Happy Hour
