This week we’re taking it back to basics with Island Creek Oyster Farm’s own beautiful oysters, sustainably raised in Duxbury, MA by ten very intense watermen.



These oysters have graced tables from The French Laundry to The White House and we’re proud to be serving them in Troy, NY.




A dozen of these beauties and a half-bottle of Fino Sherry is the perfect way to spend a Tuesday evening. Beginning at 5 p.m., oysters will be availalble for $1.50 ea.
