Queen’s King of the Raw Bar Challenges Local Celebrity Chefs to “Shuck” for Charity

We’re rolling out the RAW carpet for fellow oyster lovers to sip, slurp, shuck and shimmy during its first annual OysterFest!  Just $5 will get slurp-happy New Yorkers into the city’s hottest OysterBash and front row seats at London Lennie’s first annual Celebrity Chef Shuck-Off competition hosted by Sue Torres, Executive Chef/Owner of New York’s Sueños Restaurant and Food Network regular.

OysterBash attendees can also indulge in an oyster-packed menu, endless raw bar, drink specials including Make-Your-Own oyster shooters, live music, a raffle of scrumptious prizes, and a Slurp-Off competition featuring a $500 grand prize.  London Lennie’s OysterBash and Celebrity Chef Shuck-Off competitions are open to the public and tickets are available for $5 at the door.  Food and beverage are available for purchase during the event.

    Stay tuned for details on Oysterfest 2012.
    2011 was a HUGE success and I have a sneaky suspicion that it will be even better in 2012!
    P.S. Reservations are highly recommended but not always necessary :-)

    I’ve heard about you for quite sometime. Lived in Queens for over 17years, have not find a good seafood restaurant in Queens. This January 16th, 2012 me and my husband Juan are celebrating our 28th anniversary, are you open that day and what do you recommend for dinner. Do I need reservation for that day?

    Sincerely, Wanda.

    waiting desperately.
