Six Moonstones, Telluride, Stamford, CT

Oysters: Six Moonstones, a variety well known to me from the Oyster Bar, were presented on this long plate at Telluride, a fine place in Stamford. Briny, fresh, and delicious. About half were detached already from their shells on arrival and the cocktail sauce and tarragon vinegar were not completely to my liking, but the oysters themselves were fantastic. Even in June, un mois sans huîtres, Telluride provides a variety of northeast coast oysters at prices higher than in New York City but still of high quality.
