“Oysters are the New Sushi”
The DTLA Oyster Festival is an annual two-day festival held every October near the Oyster Gourmet bar in Grand Central Market. This event was started in 2015 by Christophe Happillon, Los Angeles’ only Maitre Écailler (Shellfish Master) and owner of The Oyster Gourmet.
Because of the successful run of the first two festivals, The DTLA Oyster Festival is now held every year.
The goal of this special culinary event is to bring together oyster farmers and oyster lovers to celebrate all-things-oyster. Farmers from across the country will have the chance to showcase their oysters, and sell them directly to the festival goers.
Visitors, on the other hand, will have the opportunity to taste and appreciate the different varieties of oysters.
OCTOBER 12th and 13th
The farmers shuck on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the Market’s Hill Street platform adjacent to The
Oyster Gourmet, which will offer a curated selection of French wines by the glass and by the bottle. Around the Market, vendors will offer special dishes featuring oysters.
– 1 for $3
– 6 for $15
– 12 for $25
– Wine pairing for your oysters for only $10 a glass
– Entry to the festival and Grand Central Market is always free
