We ate plump Tiverton oysters for Christmas and at the first post-New Year's market (Wintertime Farmers' Market, 1005 Main Street  Pawtucket) I bought South County oysters from Matunuk (and fresh flounder, only way to get it). Good taste is essential but Matunuk oysters also score points for looks, inside and out - they are plump and fill up the shells in a pleasing way and the outside shells are clean. Last year we had a giant bag of Cuttyhunk oysters which were so grubby (not to mention stinky due to a few bad ones) it tooks hours to clean them. In-house cleaner/shuckers appreciate Matunuk oysters.

For New Year's Eve, alas, no oysters, just a nine-course fish-centered extravaganza at Fiaschetteria in Venice. Great fun from soup to panettone (the best ever) and prosecco.

After eating Matunuk oysters and fish, it's time to visit the restaurant - Matunuk Oyster Bar (629 Succotash Road  South Kingstown, RI   401-783-4202)
