Bluewater Grill & Oysters

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Remy and I decided to take trip down the road to Tustin and attend another oyster tasting at the Bluewater Grill. Today's theme was East Coast vs West Coast Oysters. 12 oysters and 3 wines for $24.95.

Remy also brought a bottle of wine that she picked up in Texas. Turned out to be quite good.

Tonight they served Blue Point, Malpaque, Fanny Bay, Hammersley Inlet and Pickering Pearl oysters. I had not tried the Pickering Pearl oysters before. Very small but nice taste to them. My favorite of the selection was the Malpaque. They had just the right amount of briny taste to them. Very enjoyable. Tonight's wines were a Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc which is always nice, a Ferrari Carano Chardonnay and another white that I can't remember. These are all decent drinking wines. But for the price how can you complain. It is a bargain. I hope they do not jack up the price to $29.95 like before. Then it no longer becomes attractive. Just high priced.

I did start the evening off with a bowl of clam chowder which is very good at Bluewater Grill. I highly recommend it.

Thanks again for the nice review...just wanted to let you know that the only time we were at $29.95 for a tasting was when we did champagne...average cost per bottle for us was much higher than a wine taste...needed to charge a little more to offset the higher cost.
Thanks again for the comments.
