Fresh Oysters On The Half Shell At Drake’s Bay Oyster Company
We had a fantastic going away party before leaving for Turkey at Drake’s Bay Oyster Company in Drake’s Estuary last March. The farm was embroiled in a long-standing battle with the National Parks Service (I wrote a longform piece about the controversy for Lucky Peach; it appeared in print, so no link, sadly) which they lost in summer of 2014, and have since shut down. It’s a complicated situation, but our day was wonderful, and the oysters, needless to say, were delicious.
