“This is one of the restaurant’s most popular yearly traditions, as having fresh oysters in the midst of wintry weather is a treat for the senses,” Lily’s Bistro Owner Emily Mendenhall said in a news release. “Oyster Fest is the equivalent of a beach vacation for your tastebuds!”
Lily’s will feature a special dinner menu Tuesday through Saturday focusing on the variety of their oyster preparations. This includes two varieties of $2 oysters on the half shell, as there will be both Assorted East Coast and West Coast Kumamoto oysters available. There will also be oyster soup and appetizers such as fried oysters with Louisiana remoulade. Entree options include oyster scampi and the fried oyster po’ boy. Oysters will be fresh, and supplies will be limited.
“We’ll have plenty of options suitable for both serious oyster fans and those who come out to try something new,” Mendenhall said.
