A 10 minute walk from our house in Seattle is Frank’s Oyster House & Champagne Bar, a favorite destination of Melinda’s and mine. And with Melinda’s mom, Michele, taking Chloe, Ella and Romain out tonight, we took it upon ourselves to pay a little visit to our favorite neighborhood oyster house. We were not disappointed.
For a little more context on our interest in oysters, I direct you to this post from July 26 of last year when we were in Pornichet.
In that post from last year you will read that we ordered 6 oysters. Tonight at Frank’s we ordered 8, 4 of each variety they had. All were delicious but two, the Kusshi and the Deer Creek, were beyond outstanding. As you can see in today’s photo, the presentation was lovely and we complemented the oysters with a cocktail. What you see in my hand is called a Deshler, made of Rye, Dubonnet, Cointreau, Peychaud’s bitters, lemon & orange peel.
You see, I’m partial to Cointreau, and was before we lived in France. While there we discovered that it is produced in Angers, a scant 30 minutes by train from Nantes.
