Oyster BBQ on the beach 2015

 Registration is closed for this event
Oyster Fest at Drakes Beach, Point Reyes Sunday, October 4th, 12:30pm

Point Reyes has some of the most beautiful beach scenery in Northern California. The plan is to take over part of Drakes Beach in Point Reyes where our chef will be serving a selection of raw and baked BBQ oysters, as well as 2 baked dishes with clams or poisson cru. The clam dish

is cooked with butter, wine, parsley, shallots and cherry tomatoes, served hot. The poisson cru is ahi tuna lightly marinated in lime and coconut milk with tomato, cucumber, red onion and bell peppers. On the oyster front, we will be serving 2 types of oysters:                                                             

  • ●  Raw oysters: Tomales Bay Miyagi oysters on the half shell served with mignonette and fresh lemon, shucked on the beach by our chef himself.


  • ●  Grilled oysters: Tomales Bay oysters grilled on the half shell, served with a garlic herb and wasabi cocktail sauce. Absolutely delicious!


The oysters will sell for $2.50 apiece, and the baked dishes will sell for $10 per serving. You can also order to take home. Unopened oysters are good for 2 to 3 days. In that case, make sure to bring a cooler with ice.    

What to bring:

  • Layered clothing: Sunny weather could play along... or not... Could be very warm and sunny, could be windy, foggy and cold, could be both in the same day, so dress accordingly.

  • Lots of sun screen lotion.

  • Everything beach: towels, flip flops, umbrellas, folding chairs, games to play in the sand such as Frisbees, volleyball, sand castle building kits, etc...

  • Your own drinks, and if you don’t like oysters, your own picnic.

  • If you feel like it, some dessert, or salads, to share as a potluck.

  • Your own plate or bowl and cutlery if you want to be environmentally conscious.
