Shared from food. curated.
So where do YOUR loyalties lie? East Coast or West Coast Oysters? I found a Native New Yorker who wants to share why she thinks West Coast are some of the best.
Meet Nellie Wu, the oyster specialist and General Manager of W&T Seafood, a family-owned and operated seafood distribution company based in Brooklyn, New York. Nellie's company has been the link to connecting great NYC chefs and restaurants to West Coast shellfish farms for the past 25 years - supplying premiere oyster hubs like The Grand Central Oyster Bar with famed West Coast oysters like Totten Inlet Virginicas, Pacifics, Kumamotos, Fanny Bay Oysters, Kusshis, Olympias and European Flats.
Nellie's passionate about West Coast oysters not only from a sustainability standpoint, but also from a taste standpoint. She firmly believes they are some of the best tasting oysters you can get in North America. And with the local food movement inspiring more New Yorkers to eat locally, she just wants people to understand the need for supporting regionally grown food as well, especially ones with a good mission behind it.
Hope you enjoy the video! Would love to know what your FAVORITE oysters are in the comments!
