National Oyster Day is celebrated Monday, Aug. 5 and Los Angeles is ready to serve up all kinds from sea to shining sea. Not only are oysters refreshing and rich in nutrients, but they pair well with wine, rosé, beer and just about any kind of cocktail. These sexy, slippery, summer snacks also boost dopamine, a hormone that increases libido in both men and women. So if you are feeling frisky, head over to one of these spots to celebrate, some spots for as low as $1 each.
Rappahannock Oyster Bar
Exposed wood and concrete interiors of ROW DTLA’s historic produce terminal is the ideal setting for Rappahannock Oyster Bar’s first West Coast location. Nestled in L.A.’s Warehouse District, just blocks from the Arts District and Little Tokyo. With an emphasis on sustainability, locally sourced, ethically fished, and responsibly farmed ingredients, the menu draws inspiration from the people of L.A. and the bounty of fresh produce, fish, and meat sourced in Southern California. Happy hour goes from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. daily offering $1.50 oysters and $6 red wine, white wine and rose. And with National Oyster Day falling on a Monday, guests can enjoy these perks all night long.
