Traversing afar from Vancouver Island via importer K & B Seafood, the Royal Miyagi Oyster is “Oyster of the Month” for December 2012 at the Grand Central Oyster Bar (Grand Central Terminal, Lower Level, 42nd St. btw. Lexington & Vanderbilt Aves., 212-490-6650; oysterbarny.com), as decreed by executive chef Sandy Ingber (a.k.a. the “Bishop of Bivalves”). The Royals are priced at $2.35 per oyster.
“The Royal Miyagi is a true star of wonder,” says Ingber. “It is produced by an amazing method which results in its mild, sweet taste, making it a gift for all seasons.”
K & B Seafood’s Tom Kehoe explains: “Through many years of trial and error, K & B Seafood has sought out only the most discriminate oyster growers, individuals and companies who maintain their high standards when they rear their shellfish. The Royal Miyagi is grown using a shellfish suspension system and eventually completes its growth cycles on an inter-tidal beach where the shell hardens and the oyster picks up its mild, sweet taste and cucumber-like finish.”
Seaflight Logistics, a sister company to K & B, moves the Royal Miyagi from the cold clean waters of British Columbia to The Grand Central Oyster Bar, in less than 48 hours.
The fluted exterior shell, and the plump fresh flavor make the Royal Miyagi one of the finest and most sought after oysters on New York City restaurant menus.
