Because any month with the Letter "R" is...

I LOVE oysters and usually have them all year round.  Although, I have been told  that the best times to eat oyster are in the months with a letter "R". So I did a little research and found out more...

This belief was started in the 1900's when there was no refrigeration, so oysters had to be eaten when they were freshest. Also this may have come about because the warm months are when oysters mate. The oysters are not as plump and become soft, unlike in the colder months when their meat is firmer and has more flavor.

So what are you waiting for, get out there and grab a couple dozen! I especially enjoy them with a dirty martini or bloody Mary!

Here is a list of some of my favorite spots for the oyster enthusiast.

Roberta's (Williamsburg, Brooklyn)

Here in New York we all take our neighborhood pizza very seriously, maybe a tad too seriously by SOME peoples standards. The point is we don't care about those people AND we don't fool around with mediocre ingredients and quality, that's why Roberta's really stands out on the pizzeria list of heavy weights.  This hipster hangout serves up top notch pizza and out of this world veggie sides (straight from their rooftop garden).  I grabbed a seat at one of the many picnic tables and indulged on the Fairytale Eggplant (with mascarpone, wood sorrel and arugula), and the Axl Rosenberg Pixxa (tomato, mozzarella, sopressata, mushrooms, double garlic and jalapenos). There are many great pizzas in New York but when you combine imaginative menu options and fresher the fresh ingredients the result is pure perfection.
