Lily’s in the Oregon District will be offering discounted oyster happy hour from Tuesday through Sunday from 5-7pm until March 21st for dine in only. According to owner Emily Mendenhall, “we had so much fun at this year’s 2-week oyster fest and we’ve been brainstorming what we’d like to do for a revamped happy hour. We’ll run this for 2 weeks and then evaluate it to see if it’s well received enough to make it a permanent thing.”
They’ll be serving up oysters on the half shell, oyster shooters, fried oysters, oyster po boys, and Vietnamese baked oysters- “which are a Cochon (a NOLA restaurant owner Emily once worked at) inspired baked oyster in a garlic, lemony compound butter with red pepper flakes,” according to Chef Don Warfe, who also shared that it was one of the big hits during their Oyster Fest. There will also be specials on glasses of wine, beer, and cocktails!!
Oyster lovers are encouraged to arrive early, as they will start each day with a limited quantity to ensure freshness, and when they are gone they are gone. Warfe shares they will have both east coast oysters, which are generally saltier, a bit bigger, chewier, and have a longer, paisley shape. as well as west coast oysters that seem to have a signature cucumber or melon note, they’re mild in salt and tend to be smaller overall.
Reservations are suggested, make them by calling 937-723-7637, walk ins welcome as well.
