Any oyster connoisseur knows oysters are always in season, despite the old adage that you should only eat them during months that end in “r”. Giving context to that advice, during the times where cooling systems and refrigerators were nonexistent, it would make one an upset tummy to eat spoiled oysters during the summer. But, fret not, technology has advanced since the 1500’s and we can enjoy them year round. Now, just a tidbit about summer oysters. You may notice they are a bit smaller or thinner during the summer months, but they taste just as great.
There’s no better place to enjoy them charbroiled other than Drago’s (dragosjackson.com). With a simple list of ingredients, these oysters pack on the flavor and the palate pleasure. Drago’s charbroiled oysters come garnished with oregano, parsley, fresh lemon to add zest and New Orleans style French bread for pinching.
