Today is National Oyster and being one of my favorite foods of the sea, I have to give a shout out.

If you are in DC check out one of my favorite restaurant’s and a great place to get oysters, Hank’s Oyster Bar in Dupont. The restaurant is intimate and doesn’t take reservations, but it is usually worth the wait. Other places to check out: Old Ebbitt Grill & Kinkead’s.

CNN did a special on oysters yesterday on Eatocracy and if you want the 411 on all things oyster, check out FoodBuzz.

Happy National Oyster Day!
