All right! Let’s get right to the point. Slurping fresh oysters on the half shell alongside a good bottle of wine is one of life’s little pleasures.
For those of us who love the ocean, when you eat a fresh raw oyster, you are instantly transported to the seaside shore: you can smell the beach, imagine the breeze, and almost hear the waves crashing on the sand or the rocks.
So, while we’re on the subject, what wine comes to mind when oysters on the half shell are right in front of you? Let’s go for the Brut Champagne, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscadet, and—Chablis. Right?
And…where can you go to get fresh oysters, two words come into mind, namely Eddie V’s, Palm Desert ($2 each at happy hour), Mr. Lyons, Palm Springs, Oceans, Cathedral City, and Enzo’s, Rancho Mirage. Swim don’t walk to the nearest place and feed your face, no judging. This is a great option for Valentines Day, make your reservations now.
