Empire Oyster is back again -- you know, our yearly celebration of NY's best oysters where we bring in around a dozen local farmers and shuckers alongside a bunch of NYC chefs for super creative dishes. So get your tickets now (there are a few left at the early bird price!), and get ready to become a shuckmaster. Our annual oyster-housing celebration is shaping up to be the most delicious yet. Last year, we brought in more than a dozen NY oyster farmers, and we're shooting for even more this year so you can shoot even more raw oysters all afternoon. Plus, we're bringing in some of the city's top chefs to spin their take on the mollusks.
