Shucking A! Prime Meats Gets Into Oyster Game


What’s the latest at that ever-evolving juggernaut, Prime Meats? The Carroll Gardens spot is currently installing a modest oyster station, and we’re told that pending the hiring of a shucker, it should be up and running in a couple of weeks. This being Prime Meats, you know the oysters are going to be local — it remains to be determined what other shellfish, if any, will be on ice. Actually, it’s amazing the restaurant wasn’t serving bivalves till now, when you consider how many recent openings have included raw bars: Walter Foods, Ed’s Chowder House, Marea, Oceana, the Standard Grill, Butcher Bay, Fishtail, and soon, Mermaid Inn Oyster Bar.
