It's true you can now get oysters all year long, but it's the cold winter waters when oysters store up sugars, resulting in a plumper and sweeter taste.

The Crisfield! It's on Georgia Avenue in Washington DC has a good oyster bar. Been going there for almost 50 years. It's a time machine - they haven't changed a thing since they opened in the 40's.
