As the trees in the Osher Sculpture Garden at the de Young Museum began to take bloom, so did a thought in Executive Chef Jason Smith’s mind – fresh Tomales Bay oysters enjoyed on the de Young Café patio terrace.
The café introduced an oyster cart over the weekend offering mignonettes of champagne and just-shucked Marin Miyagi oysters out of Tomales Bay.
“I just wanted to have some fun with it,” he said. “The fresh, clean flavors of the Point Reyes National Seashore – and the fact that I can now go to Golden Gate Park and have something really nice and refreshing.”
Chef Jason said the cart is likely to reappear on weekends in the spring months ahead offering guests the chance to indulge and relax in the peaceful environment. The de Young Café is open Tuesdays through Sundays with a vibrant menu of seasonal dishes and some of the most artistic views in San Francisco.
