I remember once I was at this nice restaurant in New Orleans sitting at the bar. My boyfriend and I were laughing with the couple next to us while sipping martinis, they were from Houston. We ordered a dozen oysters and just began slurping our first gem with the mignonette when we asked them to “please feel free and help yourselves”. The woman paused and said, “oh no, I can’t, I got hepatitis C from eating oysters”.
It would be a long time before I’d eat oysters again. I’m not really sure when it started back up but I do know there is nothing better than the local Hamptons’ oyster, The Montauk Pearl. They are simply delicious and fresh and beautiful. And thanks to The Nature Conservancy doing everything in their power to keep our waterways, rivers and oceans clean (around the globe), we hope to have them flourishing there forever.

Anyway, it’s about all I remember from that stay in New Orleans, you know how it goes down there.
