Pickled Oysters (cross-post)

noob | Apr 17, 2008 10:38 AM

Apologies if I'm not supposed to do this, but I posted this on the Craving board yesterday and didn't get any response, so I'm reposting here in hopes of getting some more eyeballs:

I'm not sure this is actually a craving, since I've never tasted them, but I was just reading some NYC culinary history and all the talk about pickled oysters made me curious (apparently they were ubiquitous around here until the mid-19th century and then went out of fashion). Anyone know where I can get some in NYC?

From a cursory google, it looks like they may have been a special at cookhouse at one point but I don't see them on the menu.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
