"He was a bold man that first ate an oyster."
Few things say “Welcome to Maine!” like a freshly shucked oyster. Briny, creamy, slippery, maybe a little gross if you think about them too long, the oyster is certainly an acquired taste. Being able to throw one back with ease takes practice, and figuring out how you like them (Cocktail sauce? Mignonette? Just a squeeze of lemon?) takes a little experimentation. We can’t think of a better treat for the oyster lover or a better introductory taste for the uninitiated, than the beautiful bivalves from the Pemaquid Oyster Company.
Grown in the cold, briny waters of the Damariscotta River in Lincoln County, the Pemaquid oysters have a clean, bright flavor and literally could not be fresher. All of the oysters at Trillium events come straight from the water to your party, and are shucked to order by the oyster farmers themselves. Guests can belly up to the bar while Smokey tells them all about the farming process, and what makes his oysters stand out. And if you’d like to really go big with the raw bar experience, we can supplement the oysters with jumbo shrimp and Port Clyde crab claws, or pair your oysters with some delicious bubbles!
