Regatta's Bluff Banquet

A feast for the eyes and the taste-buds greeted guests as they arrived at Regatta Bar & Eatery’s 2018 Bluff Banquet. An oyster lover’s dream, the sold-out banquet celebrated the beginning of the Bluff oyster season on 9 March. And what could be better paired with oysters than a flute of GH Mumm Champagne on arrival? But this was a mere prelude to a menu of chef’s oyster creations (such as oyster sabayon with champagne foam), plus, of course, oysters au naturel, with the oyster shuckers shucking live in the middle of the restaurant from the eat-all-you-can Oyster Bar.
