The perfect pairing of oysters and wine is the inspiration for Shell-Shocked, an oyster and wine celebration n SALT’s lounge. East Coast oysters, fresh from the ideal conditions of Spinney Creek Shellfish’s icy Maine waters are offered multiple ways. Shucked raw on the half shell, grilled, roasted, Rockefeller’d, fried, Casino’d and more, along with grilled handmade sausages, all washed down with sommelier-selected glasses of wines to match the evening’s offerings. Everything is served à la carte; you choose what you want and how much to customize your own oyster and wine “Feast.”
With oysters fuller, richer flavor in the winter months, the selection of wines like Vermentino, Gavi, Sauvignon Blanc, sparkling wines, even Pinot Noir and others will complement and enhance the minerality, sweetness and brininess of this delicacy. Mix and match with flights, half glasses, full glasses or bottles. No reservations or tickets. Just show up hungry and thirsty.
