The Ocean’s Essence

Described by top chefs as ‘the best flavoured in the world’, today we’re celebrating the Kelly Galway Oysters.

Sourced in a small inlet of Galway Bay, their flavor builds on the Atlantic ocean’s briny taste and the rich flavors of the Clarinbridge and Kilcolgan rivers.

With a growing period of up to 5 years, they’re considered to taste like ‘the very essence of the ocean’.

Their wonderful flavour and scarcity makes them one of the most luxurious and demanded oyster species in the world.

Thankfully, you won’t have to look far, they’re awaiting you at The MAINE Street Eatery and The MAINE Oyster Bar & Grill!

A FAMILY AFFAIR

The story of the Josephine Oyster is a story of heritage and family legacy.

At the end of the 19th century, in the heart of Marennes-Oleron pool, Henri follows his passion for oyster farming and founds Maison Gillardeau.

110 years after its establishment, Maison Gillardeau rimes with French gastronomic excellence producing some of the world’s best oysters, straight from the small Ile d’Oleron.

And family remains at the heart of what makes Gillardeau oysters what they are.

In fact, it is Thierry Gillardeau who recently took over the family business from his father, for the 4th generation in a row, renaming Gillardeau’s best-selling oyster after his own daughter: Jospehine.

The Josephine is available A La Carte or as part of Shuck Fest.

Prat Ar Coum

They say you haven’t really lived until eating a Prat Ar Coum oyster from the shores of Brittany, France. At least we think that’s how the saying goes.

Either way, our SHUCK of The Month is none other than the shellfish celebrated for it’s plump, creamy texture, buttery notes and a nutty flavour that pairs perfectly with any of our Chardonnays.

So fresh, a dozen of these should have it’s own title; Prat Pack? You be the judge.
