Have you ventured out to their farm in Point Reyes? Highly recommended if you have not, helps if you know how to shuck…

How do our oyster places up here compare with Southern California so far? (Not including Angler’s of course)

Good question, in terms of oysters sf > la and I definitely prefer sf. It seems oysters are more of a thing up north (closer to the farms and bays?) than in la. I think Seattle even tops sf but that’s a different topic.

LA’s only six hours farther from the farms by ground, that’s not going to make much difference.
