Oyster New Year at Elliott’s

22-Oct-2013

 

Oodles of Oysters

 

As I write this the Oyster New Year (ONY) event is already sold out. That’s the bad news. The good news, however, is that Elliott’s Oyster New Year is a fundraiser for the Puget Sound Restoration Fund (PSRF) and a sellout means a large donation to the fund.

And you can still help out by visiting Elliott’s between now and the end of November – they’ll make a donation to PSRF for each dozen oysters purchased. The other thing you can do is get on the mailing list or remember to check back in early October 2014 so you can attend this great event next year.

At ONY there will be at least 30 varieties of oysters, 22 from local farms; 75 wineries; numerous microbrews; a seafood buffet; and, an oyster luge. Okay, maybe the luge isn’t a huge draw but after you’ve had a couple of glasses of wine it might seem more appealing! At last year’s party they shucked over 30,000 oysters. Yes, I said thirty thousand.

Last Thursday Elliott’s hosted a preview party where I sampled many of the buffet items. Those of you with tickets are in for a big treat. Razor clam fritters; smoked salmon bites; Alaskan King Crab; coconut shrimp; and, of course, the oysters. I hear the dessert bar will be pretty spectacular, too.

If you are missing the event this year, do yourself a favor and stop by Elliott’s one of these evenings. Now that tourist season has slowed down it’s a perfect time to visit the waterfront and enjoy dining on Puget Sound. The main restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and has a great Happy Hour. (At lunch they validate parking in a lot across the street.) Or if you’re looking for something more casual check out Café 56.
