Set to be one of 2019’s most exciting restaurant openings, the sustainable, seasonal and plant-centric Oyster Oyster from restaurateur Max Kuller, Chef Rob Rubba and barman Adam Bernbach is previewing their forthcoming concept with a new pop-up later this month. On Black Friday, November 29 from noon to 3pm, the trio will host “Oyster Oyster Roast” – a family-style oyster pan roast party at its sister restaurant Estadio complete with roasted oysters, oyster mushrooms, Oyster Mary cocktails and natural wines.
After announcing Oyster Oyster one year ago this month, Rubba, Bernbach and Kuller are thrilled to invite the public to another preview pop-up of the restaurant, set to open soon, in early winter 2019. They are embracing winter weather by shining the spotlight on one of the season’s most comforting oyster-centric dishes – the oyster pan roast. Traditionally a decadently creamy oyster stew, Chef Rubba’s version is vegan save for the oysters themselves, subbing in a pumpkin pecan “cream” made with a house toasted pecan ‘milk’ giving the broth a velvety, rich texture while remaining dairy-free.
For just $30 (plus tax and gratuity), diners can enjoy a four-course family-style feast, featuring Oyster Pan Roast with pumpkin pecan “cream,” chili oil and herbs; Slow-Roasted Oyster Mushrooms marinated in garlic and warm spices; a Kale and Sunflower Caesar salad, featuring a vegan dressing made with sunflower seeds; and homemade Sourdough Bread with seaweed butter.
Beverages will be available a la carte, featuring an Oyster Oyster Mary from Bernbach; and several natural wines by the glass and bottle, hand-picked by Kuller.
Oyster Oyster will continue hosting subsequent pop-ups to share their journey with hungry Washingtonians. For more information, please follow them on Instagram at @oysteroysterdc.
