OUR OYSTERS

The average human palate prefers an oyster that is in the middle between sweet and salty. This is approximately 18-23 PPT salinity.

Our East River Rocks and Magnums are excellent house oysters. Women prefer the Deep Sweets with a shorter but deeper cup. This oyster has just as much volume as the longer oysters, but is more condensed for easier consumption on the half shell.
