Taylor Shellfish Raw Bars
Taylor Shellfish is the largest shellfish producer in North America. Many of the oysters you find in Seattle's finest restaurants are grown by Taylor. Interaction 19 executive producer Bram Wessel buys oyster seed from Taylor during their annual seed sale for his personal oyster farm on Hood Canal. Taylor features an array of upscale local spots where you can try their Totten Virginicas or Fat Bastards, and it you're there on the right day, you might find the elusive Olympia oyster, the only variety native to Puget Sound. Also teriffic clams, and Dungeness crab. Locations in the Melrose Market between Pike and Pine, and lower Queen Anne are the closest to the conferce. This is the true fresh Seattle seafood experience.
