Decent Oysters (to take home) in DC?

Folks, I am a new poster, but a long, long time lurker on what used to be Jim Leff's stomping ground.

I am saddened that the oysters (bay) that I have gotten from Whole Foods on P street have been quite bad. I mean... rotten bad. Mussels, too.

The only good takeaway oysters I've had in this city that were EXCELLENT were the half bushel of CHincoteagues that I purchased from the Maine Ave. Fish Market. They were absolutely, screamingly tremendous. I call ever weekend and none of the vendors ever have Chincoteagues in stock. Only nasty Southern oysters that I wouldn't feed to my puppy.

I thought black salt's oysters were good, but not truly sparkling. Might be time of year.

Any rec for places for great (great!) take-home oysters in the greater D.C. area???
