Red Fish Grill Celebrates National Oyster Day with Oysters for Life Contest

August 1, 2013- Every morning, just like clockwork, a delivery of precious cargo arrives at the door of Ralph Brennan's Red Fish Grill. Sack after glorious sack, each containing 100 Gulf Coast Oysters, piled high and totaling about 7,000 to 9,000 briny mouthfuls a week, added up to the sale, in March, of the restaurant's 3-Millionth BBQ Oyster. Having kicked off its Oysters for Life contest to celebrate this milestone mollusk, Red Fish Grill is once again taking submissions to the competition this Monday, August 5, National Oyster Day, giving participants a chance savor any form of these succulent, milky treasures - for the rest of their born days!

Red Fish Grill's interactive online competition asks lovers of the restaurant's signature BBQ Oysters to "Build Your Own Next Best" Oyster Dish (BYONB.) The name of one lucky participant will be randomly drawn to receive up to one dozen free oysters, every day, any way, for LIFE! (No purchase is necessary.) Submit your dish suggestions by choosing from a specific selection of ingredients and techniques like a sprinkle of Garlic, dollop of Ranch, creamy Brie, and Bacon - Raw, Fried, Poached and much more. The world is your oyster!

Red Fish Grill's oysters are renowned in the culinary community, but none are more beloved than the flash fried BBQ Oyster dish, doused in Crystal Hot Sauce and drizzled with House-Made Blue Cheese Dressing. The Po-Boy version of this favorite has been honored two years in a row as the "Best Seafood Po-Boy" at the New Orleans Oak Street Po-Boy Festival. Keeping it all in the French Quarter family, the Louisiana oysters come from just around the corner at another local institution, P&J Oyster Company, which has been a business landmark since 1876 - and Ralph Brennan has never ceased purchase of these Gulf Coast beauties - even after the Oil Spill.

Create the next oyster legend to light up the menu at Red Fish Grill, and make it your best National Oyster Day ever. Famed food writer Larry Olmsted of Forbes.com stated, "The signature BBQ Oysters at Red Fish Grill in New Orleans are simply one of the best restaurant dishes I have ever tasted." Will yours earn the restaurant's next accolade?
