Red Fish Grill- 3 Millionth BBQ Oyster to be Served Wednesday, March 20

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

RED FISH GRILL  -  3 MILLIONTH BBQ OYSTER TO BE SERVED
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013
LUNCH, APPROXIMATELY BETWEEN 12NOON and 1:00PM
***

WHAT: Ralph Brennan's Red Fish Grill, in first 100 block of Bourbon Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans, is anticipating to serve, to an unsuspecting guest, its 3 MILLIONTH BBQ OYSTER DISH at Lunch, this Wednesday, March 20, 2013.

Do the math - On an average of 3,000 to 4,000 oysters per week for 15 years - that's a lot of Louisiana oysters for one restaurant.
 
Chef Austin Kirzner and his team have it down to a science and are counting the hours and thousands of shells to shuck, season, and fry their way to the 3 Millionth BBQ Oyster. The dish will be personally delivered by celebrated restaurateur, Ralph Brennan to the lucky diner whose timing could not be more perfect. Balloons will fill the room, noisemakers and lunch goers will explode with sound, and a ceremonial offering of gratitude will be provided to the diner with a plaque, customized t-shirt, and other gifts for this momentous occasion.
 
In spirit of this milestone, Red Fish Grill has asked their online community to submit their favorite oyster recipe. At the end of the year, one of the entries will be chosen at random and the winner of which will receive FREE OYSTERS FOR LIFE. (One dozen oysters, any day, any way for the rest of that person's life.)
 
Just 15 years ago, when the doors opened at Red Fish Grill, the original menu item, BBQ Oyster drenched in Crystal Hot Sauce and drizzled with House Made Blue Cheese Dressing, battled the signature dish, Hickory Grilled Red Fish, for top billing and the people have spoken. Orders of P&J Oysters were delivered by the sack, starting at 2,000 and rapidly increasing to 4,000 per week. Once hitting the kitchen, they are dredged in Seasonal Flour and fried to a golden brown. Ralph Brennan remains loyal to the Louisiana seafood industry, and has never ceased business from P&J Oyster Company, even in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Oil Spill.


WHEN & WHERE:
Wednesday, March 20, 2013 between 11AM - 3PM
The 3 Millionth BBQ Oyster will be delivered to an unsuspecting guest at Lunch service
