All About Oysters
Amber Waves Farm in Amagansett has planned a series of oyster tastings, starting this evening from 5 to 7 p.m. and continuing on the next three Thursdays in June. Fresh oysters, supplied by the West Robins Oyster Company in Southampton, will be served with beverages and the farm’s house-made mignonettes. The cost is $75. Later this summer, representatives of West Robins will teach a three-week course on creating a sustainable oyster culture and on proper shucking techniques. The fee for the course is $450.

The dinner menu includes langostino and Dover sole as well as classic Italian dishes such as chicken parmigiana, veal piccata, and assorted pizzas and pastas. The restaurant plans to offer lunch service in July.
