Celebrate Anthony’s Oyster Homecoming

Oysters are making their return to Anthony’s menus starting this week!

With the waters becoming cooler, Anthony’s is excited to bring back these fresh bivalves of Puget Sound!  Bend’s premiere seafood restaurant will offer three half-shell oysters grown by small family-owned companies – Johnson & Gunstone (5th generation oyster growers) located in Discovery Bay and Wallin Oysters (3rd generation oyster growers) located in Little Skookum Inlet. Johnson & Gunstone grows Anthony’s exclusive rack & bag grown “Anthony’s Select” oyster. Anthony’s has worked with both of these families through multiple generations. Starting in October, Anthony’s will present local oysters shucked on the half-shell and in a number of other signature preparations as well as paired with their “oyster-friendly” local wines!
