What types of oysters are great to eat in Boston?

I was in Boston in September and October this year, and it was oysters season.

Now I don't know if this is the norm, as the last time I was in the US and there was an oyster festival it was after the BP oil spill. So New Orleans had a oyster festival to promote their seafood.

Either way, I was swamped with so much choice of oyster varieties.

Luckily, one restaurant was serving a oyster platter special so I was able to sample a bunch. So I wanted to highlight my favourites from Legal Seafood's oyster platter special.

You will definitely have your own favourites, but if you need help deciding, here are my favorites.

My favorites are:

  • Glidden point oysters
  • Naked cowboy oysters
  • Sandy neck oysters

I liked Glidden point oysters as it was big and delicious. Sandy neck oysters was indeed really Sandy but sweet. I found Naked cowboy oysters had more of a briny taste that I liked.
