Local Houston restaurant shucking its way into oyster season

Eunice prepares to take on a busy season of oyster shucking and eating

HOUSTON – Oyster season is back in full force and Eunice’s Executive Chef Drake Leonards is excited about it and even more pumped to bring a modern Cajun-Creole brasserie-style menu inspired by the flavors of his childhood to Houston. The seasonally-inspired menus marry European influences with the ingredients and food ways of the Gulf Coast; items include a full raw bar.

Many people don’t know how to shuck oysters, but it is a very simple process

  1. Get yourself and oyster knife
  2. Hold the oyster firmly with a towel
  3. Insert your knife into the small opening crack in the oyster
  4. Twist your oyster knife and you should hear a small crack
  5. Follow your oyster up and around with your knife
  6. Open and enjoy
