It’s oyster season in Paris, and the foodosphere is buzzing about the latest restaurant news in the French capital: Michelin three-star chef Guy Savoy will debut L’Huitrade in early December. (The French word for oysters is “huîtres’.) Entirely dedicated to oyster tasting, L’Huitrade will be located across from Restaurant Guy Savoy on rue Troyon in the 17th arrondisement.
Guy Savoy will showcase oysters from five of the country’s most talented ostréiculteurs (oyster farmers): Yvon Madec from de Prat-Ar-Coum (Brittany), David Herve from Charentes (the Atlantic coast of Poitou-Charentes), Joël Dupuch from Arcachon, the Maison Gillardeau from Marennes-Oléron (Poitou-Charentes), and Florent Tarbouriech from l’étang de Thau (in the southern region of Languedoc-Roussillon).
The oyster bar encompasses a small space, but it was designed by in-demand architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, so expect the interiors to be dazzling. For more information, visit www.guysavoy.com
