The name of the game at Bernadine's is Gulf Coast cuisine, so of course there's an excellent selection of oysters from the region. They are available by the dozen, either raw on the half shell or chargrilled. The shuckers at Bernadine's don't limit themselves, though, and they often have oysters from the East Coast as well, including Prince Edward Island and Virginia. Accented with a dash of Bernadine's housemade hot sauce or mignonette, these bivalves make for a mighty fine ride. Get there early because the rarest oyster varieties often sell out long before closing time.
