Ready to slurp these down? 5 best places for oysters!


Happy National Oysters on the Half Shell Day! Now that’s a mouthful! How about a mouth full of yummy oysters to celebrate today! 

Here are five of our favorite spots to get your fill of bivalve mollusks!

PB CATCH

This place has one of the best raw bars in the county, offering a vast selection of oysters, from sweet to briny. The interiors are serenely rich, the ambiance relaxed and the service polished.

PB Catch: 251 Sunrise Ave., Palm Beach; 561-655-5558


RACK’S FISH HOUSE & OYSTER BAR

This off-Atlantic-Ave eatery houses a busy oyster bar, where you can sit and watch the cooks shuck your appetizers. The raw bar offers fresh oysters and clams on the half shell.

Racks: 5 SE Second Ave., Delray Beach; 561-450-6718


THE PARCHED PIG

The mascot to Coolinary Café, The Parched Pig has made its mark. The bar has been hopping every night since opening. They serve bites like fresh cold water oysters, fancy toasts and complex charcuterie plates.

The Parched Pig: 4650 Donald Ross Rd. (Donald Ross Village plaza), Suite 100; 561-360-3063


SPOTO’S OYSTER BAR

Palm Beach Gardens’ top spot for raw oysters does justice to its middle name.

It offers Bluepoint oysters from Long Island Sound, and Duxbury and Wellfleet oysters from Cape Cod for appetites large and small. (And the oyster shooters here are downright sinful.)

Spotos: 4560 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 561-776-9448. (In Stuart, at 131 SW Flagler Ave.)


CITY OYSTER & SUSHI BAR

Here’s a spot where you can get both oysters and clam on the half shell. Clam lovers also can slurp some nice New England-style chowder.

City Oyster: 213 E. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach; 561-272-0220

Step up to the counter at Dad’s Luncheonette, and two things immediately become apparent. First, the restaurant is an old train caboose, with no indoor seating. Second, the man who descends from the caboose every few minutes to serve his customers may very well be the happiest chef in Northern California. “How’s your wife?”...

On a wet Friday evening on the south side of Dublin, near the Portobello neighborhood’s busy and unfashionable Leonard’s Corner, eight lanes of traffic crisscrossed near a halal grocer, takeout shops, the fluorescent tube lighting at Washers Laundry, and the year-old modern Irish restaurant Bastible. Inside the restaurant, three sure-footed...

The ideal aperitif: Good vermouth, cool and fragrant

One summer evening a few years ago, I was standing in the Napa Valley kitchen of Steve Matthiasson, a farmer and winemaker, when he handed me a tumbler filled with amber liquid and a fat cube of ice. It was not what I was expecting from Matthiasson, who, with his wife, Jill Klein Matthiasson, makes a range of wonderfully pure and refreshing wines from...

When a cook such as Rima Kasm prepares for Ramadan - the month-long period during which Muslims fast during daylight hours - she knows that planning is even more essential than usual. "I will write down what I want to cook each day and get everything I need," says the Newport Beach, California, resident who came to America from her native...
