Go Behind The Scenes Of Montauk Shellfish Company

Food Curated recently stopped by Montauk to film this delightful little video about the zip code's very first oyster farm. Waaaay back in 2009, one of the principles of the company, Mike Martinsen, asked his landlord for permission to start the farm on Lake Montauk. The landlord said "yes" and Montauk Shellfish Company was born. Since then, the company has been thriving?demand already exceeds supply?and the little bits of briny goodness (named "Montauk Pearls") can be found in "select seafood joints, like Maison Premiere in Brooklyn and The Lobster Place in Chelsea Market."
