Steamed (not raw) oysters in Southeast Florida?

JulieF | Oct 28, 2008 01:22 PM

Have had a hankering lately for a couple buckets of steamed oysters in southeast Florida. Anyone know of a restaurant that serves them here?

When I'm on the SW coast, have enjoyed Phillipi Creek's (in Sarasota Area) -- big metal pans with the oysters served on top of chunks of celery and onions -- and also at SOB's (that's Smoked Oyster Brewery) on Ft. Myers Beach.

Had to settle for a half dozen roasted ones with blue cheese at Shuck N Dive in Fort Lauderdale the other day -- huge ones, too -- but still not satisfying my
craving(s). And only whetted my appetite (and my memory). All suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks.
