My husband is a huge fan of oysters and I, having only tried them twice, was simply not convinced. We decided to give Huitrerie Regis a try as it had really good reviews, and my husband was really interested in trying it out. I was a good sport and tagged along.
When we arrived at the resto, we were surprised as it was elbow to elbow, jammed inside. There was one open table inside, but we would have been wedged between two busy tables (I mean wedged!). We asked if we could wait a few minutes for an outdoor table. The waiter was so kind as to open a new table for us outdoors so we didn't even have to wait. We sat down and enjoyed overhearing the banter of locals and watching people go by.
We each ordered a platter of oysters (boy, was I such a sport) but my platter had several shrimp included. The platter was served with bread and butter on the side, as well as a ramekin of shallots in vinegar and plenty of lemon wedges as well.
The shrimp were fantastic, which I really wasn't too worried about. But imagine my surprise when i tried one oyster, and then another, and then another, and realised that I was actually ENJOYING them. (I had only had one glass of wine, so I was still in touch with all of my senses.)
This was one of our more memorable and delightful dining experiences in Paris and I would recommend it to oyster lovers and oyster haters alike. Regis just might change your mind!
