The new hype in Paris: any kind of bars or restaurants (not necesarily fancy seafood venues) now find great local oyster farmers from the Atlantic coast who come to Paris all week long to deliver, open and serve extra fresh oysters at any hour of the day, in front of happy locals. Still best served of course with a glass of white wine.
So forget for a moment your traditional expensive oyster restaurants. Here’s a new trend in Paris you should know of.
Where and when can you taste ultra fresh oysters in Paris?
A trend embodied by French website “Poiscaille“, a website where you can order ultra fresh seafood to take back home.
You can as well taste them directly at the bar during their “Happy Oysters” (Happy Hours for Oysters) at:
