Celebrate National Oyster Day with Billion Oyster Project, on Monday, August 5, with an intimate oyster and wine tasting at Oceana. Guests will enjoy a half-dozen oysters, prepared in a variety of ways by Chef Bill Telepan. Each oyster preperation will be prefectly paired with wine compliments of our friends at William Fèvre.
Dotted through the tasting will be discussions on the oyster pairings, oyster’s role in the ecology and history of New York, and an overview of the Billion Oyster Project (BOP) and how to get involved.

The recycled oyster shells from the social will act as a growing substrate for thousands of baby oysters. In honor of National Oyster Day, Oceana will be donating 5% of sales from August 5th to Billion Oyster Project.
