Greetings, esteemed guests and culinary adventurers! Allow me to extend a warm invitation to you to explore one of the most captivating dishes on our menu at The Oyster Bar—our Baked Oysters. This dish is not merely a meal; it’s a gastronomic experience, a symphony of flavors that harmonizes the ocean’s bounty with culinary artistry. If you’ve yet to dine with us, consider this your engraved invitation to a feast for the senses.
The Overture: Samish Bay Oysters
The star of this dish is, of course, the Samish Bay oyster. Harvested from the pristine waters of the Pacific Northwest, these oysters offer a unique blend of briny and sweet flavors, a testament to their natural habitat. But at The Oyster Bar, we believe that even nature’s finest can be elevated.
The First Movement: Asiago and Boar Bacon
As the oysters are gently baked, they are graced with a layer of Asiago cheese, adding a nutty, savory note that complements the oyster’s natural sweetness. But what’s that you taste? A hint of smokiness? Ah, that would be the boar bacon, a sophisticated twist that adds depth and complexity.
The Second Movement: Creamed Arugula and Herbed Brioche Crumbs
The dish then takes a verdant turn with creamed arugula, introducing a peppery undertone that dances delightfully on the palate. And let’s not forget the herbed brioche crumbs, which add not just texture but also an aromatic bouquet that rounds out the dish.
The Finale: A Culinary Masterpiece
As you take that first bite, you’ll understand why we refer to this dish as a symphony. Each element, from the oyster to the final sprinkle of herbs, plays its part in a larger culinary orchestra. The result is a dish that is both complex and harmonious, a true masterpiece that you’ll find nowhere else but at The Oyster Bar.
An Invitation You Can’t Refuse
