re: Cheapest raw oysters in Baton Rouge? (Posted on 3/28/13 at 2:53 pm to pochejp)
When did you decide to leave the paradise of AP and venture across the border to the big city of BR??
I kid. I had some for happy hour on a Friday that were small and then I went for lunch the next day and paid full price and they were huge. Then the next day I had some for happy hour they were small again. Coincidence?? I think not. I've noticed this occurrence a few times in the past.
I wouldn't post up trolling bull shite just to flame up the infallible F&D board.

How hard is it to leave the small/medium size ones in the ice until happy hour while shucking the larger ones for full price paying customers?? Really?? How hard can it be??

Really?? When you're shucking 1000s of oysters daily you're not picking through them. You're just shucking...it's not a company policy anywhere I've seen. You get what you get unless you request differently. And they will give you larger oysters any time of the day if you ask.
ETA: Restaurants aren't paying premiums for larger gulf oysters and they aren't charging anymore for them either.
