All Hail The Oyster King! Mermellier Kevin Joseph Hosts a Dock to Dish Beach Tasting in Sag Harbor

The “Oyster King” Kevin Joseph

A little overcast weather could not rain on the parade of the “Oyster King”, Kevin Joseph, who shucked up some perfect Montauk Pearl Oysters at his Empire Oyster’s Shuck Truck & Raw Boat shindig at Long Beach in Sag Harbor over the holiday weekend.  Kevin is the top Hamptons’ “mermmelier”. (which is to be to oysters what a sommelier is to wine. To be honest, I was never an oyster eater until I met Kevin this summer and now I am total fan of the slippery devils..

A small, socially distanced crew of friends and oyster lovers gathered alongside the Shuck Truck and Raw Boat as Kevin dressed the oysters with his gourmet accoutrements.  Local pairings served included: East End Rose, Montauk IPA on tap, Wolffer Rose Cider, Montauk Summer Ale, Montauk Hard Seltzer, and a moody pink sunset to top it all off.

As the season ends, Kevin shares, “The next chapter of my life on the water begins very soon. I am sharing this as a means to set and share intentions to manifest life, love, health, fun, adventure, money and purpose. I’ll be headed South around October 18th with a planned stop in Charleston to take meetings with local investors and connectors relative to the RAW BARge through a membership model.  Next stop, South East Florida where I will work as private / yacht chef and consulting with restaurants in that region. Follow along for the adventure with me!” @empire_oyster, @theoysterhood and @kevinjoseph
