The SOLD OUT Empire Oyster, presented by Thrillist, was a celebration of the oysters, sustainable seafood, craft beer, wine and spirits grown, caught or made in The Empire State of New York.

There were a dozen or so participating chefs from restaurants like BLT Fish Shack, L&W Oyster Co., and The Monarch Room, and they were all paired with different local NY state oyster farmers to present an original dish  that highlights all the best parts of the individual shucker. At the end of the event, guests voted on which one they liked the best and whoever received the most votes was crowned “King of Oysters”.

In addition to the different oyster preparations, there were also be an unlimited oyster bar featuring oysters from Smithtown Bay, which have all been hand-harvested.

At the event, Blue Point Brewing Company poured 12 of their selections, including an Oyster Stout created especially for Oyster Week, Mosaic IPA, their Toasted Lager, and Golden Ale.
