The world’s love for oysters (AKA everyone’s favourite culinary delicacy) continues to grow and evolve. We just can’t get enough of these bivalve molluscs with rough irregular shells (Wikipedia, 2019), and we have discovered an Auckland restaurant strip that is set to elevate our appreciation to a level like never before.
That’s right, it’s oyster season at the restaurants of Federal Street with fresh, New Zealand oysters available throughout January. Whether you’re outside on the patio at The Grill or 53 floors up the Sky Tower at The Sugar Club, you can enjoy half a dozen oysters and a glass of selected Champagne for $25. Champagne and oysters are famously a match made in heaven, and whatever way you look at it, it’s set to be the culinary and imbibe hotspot of the month, so you’re not going to want to delay in getting down there at your earliest convenience.
If you still need more persuading, here’s what the restaurants are offering…
