This Saturday, October 21, Philadelphia’s seafood and raw bar destination Oyster House will be featuring an all-day menu takeover of oysters from top local growers. Throughout the day, Oyster House will shuck over six varieties of oysters from local waters, chosen by owner Sam Mink for their high quality and their devotion to the region.
Farms include 40 North (Barnegat Bay, NJ), Sweet Amalia (Cape May, NJ), Betsy’s Cape Shore Salts (Cape May, NJ) and Elder Point (Port Norris, NJ). Littleneck and cherrystone clams from other local purveyors will also be offered.
Additionally, for the day, Oyster House collaborated with Philadelphia’s Franklin Fountain to create an oyster-flavored ice cream made with over 100 local oysters (yes, that’s right). This special flavor, served in an oyster shell, will be offered complimentary to any guest who orders a dozen of the local oysters.
Lastly, as a reminder for late night oyster lovers, Oyster House’s Saturday buck-a-shuck happy hour is served from 9 p.m. until 11 p.m., featuring $1 oysters, $3 shooters, $3 drafts and $5 punch.
