The Oyster Gourmet Bar at Grand Central Market

Oysters are a religion for Christophe but he also serves other shell fish and seafood delicacies. In his Oyster Bar, Christophe is presenting oysters like a sommelier would present a fine wine to create a dynamic fusion between terroir and meroir : “a sense of the sea”. This enhances the customers’ experience in discovering the secrets of an incredible delicacy.

• DTLA Oyster Festival •


The 5th Edition of the DTLA Oyster Festival
will be held on October 12 & 13 – 2019

Celebrate your favorite briny bivalves at the 5th Annual DTLA Oyster Festival on October 12 and 13 from 11am-8pm. This special culinary event will bring together oyster farmers from across North America for a celebration of all-things-oyster at Grand Central Market.

Come meet the farmers, taste their half-shells, and learn about the distinctive “merroir,” or taste of place, that distinguishes oysters grown in different waters.

The farmers will be shucking both days from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., while the Oyster Gourmet will offer a selection of French wines by the glass.

At 8 p.m., enjoy wine and oysters on the Market patio during a free screening of the film “The Oyster Farmers.”

Christophe was a big hit and took our party to the next level! His knowledge of oysters and interaction with our guests as he shucked over 300 oysters throughout the night made the seafood bar the central focus of the party! I would recommend him to everyone who wants to leave a lasting impression on their guests !

I just wanted to thank you SOOO much for the amazing oysters you provided for my husband, myself and our guests. Even months after our wedding, we are still receiving emails and compliments at what an amazing surprise the oyster bar was and how wonderful you were! They were absolutely delicious and we look forward to having you in our future parties! Thank you thank you!!
