Cotuit Bay, Cape Cod   MapOyster bars nearby

Oysters from the Nantucket Sound side of Cape Cod, grown on one of the oldest oyster leases in the country (across Cotuit Bay from the town of Osterville, which used to be “Oysterville”). The oysters are started in mesh bags, then bottom-planted in the shallows of Cotuit Bay to strengthen their shells and deepen their cups.

    Had at The Hourly Oyster House in Cambridge, MA on Oct. 6, 2017. Has a more complex flavor profile than many other oysters from the Cape. Nice at first but it remains as a sort of heavy lingering sweet brine. Not necessarily a negative, but I personally prefer a cleaner-finishing oyster.

    I met Cotuit this year and fell in love with its salinity. Cotuit has a great balance of attack and defense to my mouth.

    Cotuits are a regular at my local place and tonight were very nice although very small. Lovely briny little fellow full of flavor. This has long been one of my favorites, reflecting my love of briny oysters.
