Fun Fact

"New Yorker city dwellers have had a long love affair with oysters. In fact, on April 1, 1937 it was noted that piles of discarded oyster shells could be found in front of Oyster Houses on South Street and Pike Slip. "

Product Preparation

We recommend enjoying Beacon Points raw on the half shell, with a bright Mignonette sauce of vinegar, shallots and coarsely-ground black pepper. They also roast well with a little butter, lemon juice and fresh parsley.
