It's Oyster Season in the Lowcountry
We’ve all heard the old myth about how you should never eat an oyster in a month without the letter ‘R.’ Although oysters are actually available year round, it does ring true that some of the best oysters are eaten in the colder months. And now that summer is nearly officially over, oyster season is upon us!
And where better to celebrate than at Blossom’s incredibly fabulous oyster bar?
If you’re like us, you can’t wait for colder weather. You look forward to Labor Day, year after year, signifying the time of year when the oysters are plump and oyster roasts are one of the perfect get togethers for friends and family alike. You can’t wait to break out your gloves and oyster knives, and oyster options on the menu never cease to catch your eye. Whether you prefer your oysters raw or well steamed, plain or dipped in sauce, there’s an endless supply of options for you to choose from during oyster season in the Lowcountry.
At Blossom, we offer several oyster-themed platters at our raw bar, with both raw and steamed options. We have four different types of oysters to choose from, a full raw platter, a full steamed platter, and oyster poke or sashimi tuna and oysters if you’re interested in something more diverse.
We know how much Charleston loves its oysters. This is why we opened our oyster bar in the first place. Because we want to serve our customers, and serve them well. We understand that you want to know where your oysters came from, and you want a say in how they’re cooked.
At our raw bar, we offer four different types of oysters: James River from James River, VA; Skull Creek Cups from Beaufort, SC; Beausoleil from Neguac, New Brunswick; and Pink Moon Oysters from P.E.I. Each one has its own distinct flavor and features that set it apart from the others. So you can taste test all four to see which you like best, or you can choose your favorite and stick to it.
We’ve been waiting all summer for oyster season to arrive, and we know you have too. Book your table at Blossom today to celebrate oyster season the only way the Lowcountry knows how: eating oysters.
