"It gives me an extra energy boost when I teach somebody how to really enjoy oysters; something magical happens!"
Meet our oystershuckers
Book the best oystershucker with Red Oyster! Ever since our founder Matijn had the idea of oystergirls and oystermen in the Netherlands 20 years ago, our oystershuckers have been the toast of every event they’ve been to. Our oystershuckers are Oystertainers. Anyone can open an oyster, but to Oystertain, you need the right oyster, the right Oystertainer, skill, craftsmanship, energy, enthusiasm, and flair. All our oystershuckers are passionate about oysters, passionate about people, and passionate about bringing them together.
How do our oystershuckers work?
Our team members all wear tailor made leather aprons, and they carry a bucket of fresh oysters with them along with all of the condiments that you could possibly need: lemon, Tabasco sauce, fresh pepper, and of course mignonette! Our oystershuckers are all completely trained in the craftsmanship of opening oysters especially for you, and they will rove through your event on foot providing freshly shucked oysters to anyone who requires it.
Have an oystershucker at your event
With Red Oyster, you can book an oystershucker for any party or festivity or event. A birthday party, a wedding, a corporate meeting, a bat mitzvah, a sailing trip around Manhattan, or a meeting – just say the word and we’ll be there! Our team of professional Oystertainers will arrive at your venue, whether it’s your home or a boat on the Hudson, and shuck fresh oysters individually for you and your guests.
We are so proud of our team, and we love to show them off on all possible occasions. Opening oysters properly is hard as it takes both strength and precision – and yet our oystershuckers manage to do it with speed, delicacy, and grace every time.
As you and your guests enjoy your event, you can count on it that an oystershucker from our team will not be far away, ready to shuck you a delicious, personally selected oyster with their gleaming silver knife. Let us Oystertain you, and expect exceptional oysters, vibrant conversation, and a brilliant atmosphere.
