East Beach Blonde

East Beach Blonde

Ninigret Pond, Rhode Island   Map it!

Farmed in Ninigret Pond, one of Rhode Island’s abundance of prime salt ponds, guarded by the barrier beach of East Beach. Grown in off-bottom cages and tumbled frequently. The runts are tossed back to overwinter on the bottom so they cup up–unusual for cocktail sized oysters–then harvested with bull rakes. Not for the soft-shouldered.

    Medium brine. Medium meat. Finish is a bit musty. Good but not great.

    This is an outstanding oyster, one of the best I have had.
    Three qualities distinguish this jewel from Ninigret, sustainable practice, subtle brine and a sweet fresh finish.
    I like to know where my seafood comes from and how it is handled. The EBB team focuses on sustainable practice and fast fresh delivery. It is good to know your oystermen (and women at EBB) are good stewards of the earth. Getting to the meat of the review, this sublime oyster has a luxurious texture and a mild brine. The finish is sweet and clean like a breath of sea air. I have had these many times and they always delight!

    Fantastic oyster. Finally had a taste of them for the first time this year. I am excited to keep finding these beauties in my travels.
