I love oysters....I love east coast oysters, and Boston is one of the best places (imo) to consume them. I live 3 hours west and always look forward to the next drive to slurp a dozen....My question?....Why are they so damn expensive? Any of the places we enjoy (Island Creek & B&G to name a couple) charge $2.50 to $3.00 per.
It's nothing to pay more than $34 for a dozen.
I can see during the peak of the winter but the rest of the season?...geez.
I know some places host $1 oysters times, but it seems I can never find them when I'm in town.
