Utah Beach

Normandy   View on Ocean Map

Utah Beach is where things went down on D-Day. Liberated from Axis rule, the French were free to do what they do best–grow oysters. Utah Beach has since become famous for the fat, salty oysters that grow on this cold, windy stretch of Normandy coast. As in Cancale, the tides are huge here, and the beach firm, perfect conditions for “French Tables”–aka, rack-and-bag.

Utah Beach (1 Rating)

  1. Rating 4.5

    Awfully good, fat and rich, with plump meat and beautiful shells. The salt and iodine on the finish is a bit overpowering, which is the only thing that keeps them from being 5-star oysters.
