Vineyard Sound Raw Bars was created eleven years ago because I wanted to showcase the best representation of Martha’s Vineyard’s local shellfish.
Over those eleven years our raw bars have been present at wedding celebrations, rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, fund raising events, memorials, cocktail parties, cookouts, and casual poolside gatherings. Each event is as important as the last and our dedication to quality is unwavering.
Prior to each event, our oyster selections are first determined by seasonality and geographic variation. After an area(s) has been chosen, the farm will be selected through client input and availability. The oyster farmer will hand pick the oysters for shape and size before icing them down immediately. The oysters will then stay iced down and they will be traced from the ocean to your event.
Once on site we will setup in an area that is most logical for the free flowing of energy that a raw bar creates. All condiments and accouterments of a robust raw bar will be presented. A skilled shucker and storyteller will be on site to perform the art of the raw bar.
Talking about the idiosyncrasies of each oyster and the different merroirs of the Vineyard is the real joy in what we do. Let us share with you the best of what Martha’s Vineyard’s coastline has to offer.
