The Morrison Oyster Festival
Time Out says
The city's biggest bivalve celebration is back
It's the eigth year of the Morrison Oyster Festival and Sydney still can't seem to get enough of those tasty little bivalves. During the month of October, the inner city restaurant and bar will boast oysters from 50 regions around Australia.
Oyster Hour is back with $1.50 oysters from 6-7pm daily, and the weekend holds two-hour sessions of unlimited sparkling wine to accompany a dozen freshly shucked sea babies for $55 per person – or upgrade to French maison G.H. Mumm’s Cordon Brut Champagne for a cool $155.
But this year, a whole range of bespoke oyster plates have been added to the lineup. The 'Million Dollar Oyster' comes topped with snow crab meat, Avruga caviar and chives; while the chicken fried po’boy is slathered with oyster mayonnaise; and oysters come dressed with your choice of kimchi vinaigrette, fermented chilli XO sauce, horseradish crème fraîche or Tanqueray gin and tonic.
