Why We Love It
Island Creek oysters are on acclaimed restaurant menus nationwide, from San Francisco’s Fifth Floor to Chicago’s The Publican to New York’s Aldea. They’re plucked from pristine Massachusetts waters and shipped to you in the very bag they first live in on the oyster boat. These are among the best New England shellfish we’ve found, with all the hallmarks of that region's oysters—briny, bright, sweet, and beautifully craggy in appearance.
