An Oyster Connection

On Monday I went to the Central Square Farmer's Market, where I picked up a copy of Edible Boston. The great oyster photo on the cover attracted me to the article, Duxbury Pearls, which told the story of Skip Bennett, owner of the oyster farm that produces Island Creek oysters, and the source of all the oysters for Per Se in NYC. Then yesterday morning, the Globe mentioned an Oyster Night Celebration at a local restaurant, with a free glass of Prosecco and oysters from, where else, Island Creek. The line was long when I arrived and continued to grow, free oysters apparently being much more popular than the Island Creek folks had imagined. With the crush of people, I didn't get to meet Skip Bennet, but I did get two super-yummy oysters accompanied by a small glass of Prosecco. It wasn't Per Se, but it was a very pleasant Tuesday night.
