Food Update – On Oysters in Louisiana

Oysters at the bottom of the gulf have been found to be covered in a brown slick. As a result, many restaurants in the French Quarter and even that great place I blogged about, Drago’s, have been forced to take raw oysters off their shelves. Looks like that was the last time we got to eat them raw oysters, for a while yet. So sad 🙁

    I like the phrasing of anxiety being replaced by grim reality. Very well written. Unfortunately, this will not be the last example of grim realities taking place in the gulf.
