National Oyster Day at Trinity
On Friday, August 5, 2016, mollusk lovers can celebrate National Oyster Day at Trinity, the new restaurant/bar in New Orleans’ lower French Quarter. Executive Chef Michael Isolani will be presenting a special and creative “Oyster” menu.
“Like most people in New Orleans, I’m a big oyster fan," says Isolani. "At Trinity, I wanted to do something different with our oysters and it’s fun to experiment with different accoutrements and flavors."
Available by the ½ dozen, Trinity features five different types of oyster presentations. Purists might opt for
raw oysters with cocktail “caviar”, celery shoots. and housemade soda crackers. More adventurous options include baked oysters, prepared au gratin style in a ceramic pot and accompanied by grilled ciabatta; broiled oysters – panko crusted and topped with cayenne aioli and flying fish roe; smoked oysters served on deviled eggs and topped with Cajun caviar and horseradish; and oyster gazpacho, the perfect summer soup with raw oysters, radish sprouts and cucumber.
Guests can accompany their oysters with one of Trinity’s signature cocktails, including: The Pearl – Fortaleza Reposado Tequila, Manzanilla sherry, house infused poached pear brandy and the SRP Punk – house infused salt roasted-peach rye, lemon, basil, sugar, peach bitters and salt. Lower tolerance imbibers might choose a SoftTail (low ABV), such as Da Jam – house infused mixed berry Aperol, balsamic reduction and cane sugar and Borscht and Bubbles – vodka, lemon, beets, and dill, topped with champagne. A large selection of local craft brews and a moderately priced wine list are also on offer.
Oyster offerings will be available from 5PM – 11PM. Reservations can be made at www.opentable.com, or by calling 504-325-5789.
