Every Thursday during happy hour we feature a different Ocean Wise seafood or shellfish and we invite our local fishermen and women, shellfish farmers, and seafood experts in to share some stories and tricks of the trade over a drink and some happy hour snacks.
On Thursday, July 25th, Alex Tung the Canadian Chef Brand Ambassador for Acadian Sturgeon and Caviar, will be at Coquille to share his passion for this prehistoric fish. Their Acadian Wild Caviar comes from Bay of Fundy Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrhynchus) and is harvested during the migration up the Saint John River. The caviar is processed in a state-of-the-art Canadian Food Inspection Agency inspected processing plant in Carters Point, NB using the standardized malassol (low salt) technique. With egg size similar to sevruga, this caviar has an exquisite taste (buttery, nutty, umami) and will delight both caviar connoisseurs and first timers! Certified Ocean Wise, Acadian Wild Atlantic Sturgeon Caviar is the only sustainable and legal wild sturgeon caviar in the world.
Come join us for this delectable seafood treat. We’ll be serving up complimentary caviar bites with a taste of the Bella ‘Cavada Vineyards’ bubbles!
*Reservations and walk-in guests are all welcome*
