Herring Today, Gone in a Few Weeks


People, get ready. Maatjes herring are headed our way. If you haven’t partaken in this seasonal delicacy before, mark your calendars.

At The Oyster Bar, the annual herring festival begins next week, on June 1 and, if supplies remain good, should go until June 18. We visited several times last year and adored the oily, super-fresh little lady fishes.

At Aquavit, Marcus Samuelsson is offering quite a spread. His all-you-can -eat herring buffet is $20.07 at lunch and $48 at dinner. The deal starts June 11th and the herring go bye-bye June 16th.
