Pull Up the Bermuda Yacht & Shuck the Island Creek Oysters: Announcing The Ordinary Pizzeria Menu

The Ordinary Pizzeria_Banner_newFinal

Welcome to Charleston, South Carolina, home of a rich seafaring history and The Ordinary fancy oyster hall. That’s the greeting James Beard Award-winning chef-owner Mike Lata will offer in his welcome cocktail at Harry’s Pizzeria on Tuesday, April 8.  His city in a glass.  In 1997, to celebrate the shared heritage and cultural ties of Bermuda and Charleston, the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club (est.1884) first sponsored a 777-nautical mile race between the ports every two years. The official drink of the club and race – and pretty much America’s southern starboard – is its namesake.

Ordinary-09The Royal Bermuda Yacht Club combines Mount Gay rum, falernum, Cointreau, and lime juice and dates back to the 1940s, as it should given all the sugarcane spirit flowing through its port.  Toast to life on the water with a taste of history in the recipe below and get ready for Mike’s menu, shuck-full of deep cup oysters from our friends at Island Creek. Purchase tickets here which include the menu, drinks, tax, tip, and The Ordinary’s Duxbury oyster knife to-go gift.
