Champagne and oysters. If you don’t know, now you know. They are such a perfect pairing – the effervescent sweetness of the champagne and the briney succulence of the oyster are just heavenly together. It didn’t hurt that I had this pairing with the warm glow of a Napa sunset, dining al fresco at Brix restaurant in Yountville. But it is widely available!
I didn’t like oysters until I was much older; don’t forget a tip in an earlier blog about wines and trying them again at a different time in your life. Same goes for food!!
Happy Friday, foodie friends! Eat, drink and go well this weekend.

Wow! Those oysters look incredible! There’s a place in San Francisco on the warf near all the sea lions that had the most incredible variety and quality of oysters; I was there awhile ago but don’t remember the name of the place – I was wondering GoGirl, if you might know the place – I think they are pretty well known to that area. They’re not the place that throws the fish all around though, they are kind of inside the big market area. I know that’s maybe a bit of a stretch but thought I’d ask you since I’ve been enjoying your blog and site. Anyone (me included) who is thinking of hitting the left coast son would love that place.
I think the one in San Fran is Hog Island oyster co. Fish throwing is at Pike Place in Seattle. 😀
Forgot to ask – where in the Maryland area would you suggest for great oysters? I know NC at Howard’s Pub you can get good ones, but that’s a bit of a drive for a craving ;
The Clydes in DC has a great selection of oysters – And during happy hour they’re half off!!
