Sea Crest Beach Hotel has partnered with the International Oyster Symposium of the World Oyster Society to host the first annual Oyster Grand Tasting on Oct. 26 in Sea Crest’s newly renovated Nauset Center. The tasting will highlight dishes utilizing oysters harvested from waters spanning Provincetown to Nantucket from leading area chefs, including Sea Crest Beach Hotel’s own Executive Chef Daniel Kenney. Participating chefs include Florence Lowell from the Naked Oyster in Hyannis, Timothy Ames from Mooncussers Tavern in Harwich Port, and Matt Tropeano from Pain D’Avignon.

The tasting, designed to raise awareness for the 6th International Oyster Symposium that will be held at Sea Crest Beach Hotel for its East Coast debut in October 2015, is priced at $95 per person and will run from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Presentations by top chefs and live music from the Fred Clayton Trio will round out the night.
