It takes a lot of patience and quality awareness to make the oysters and seafood of the Brasserie Lipp one of the best. Naturally, an oyster takes four years to be eaten. For us it is a top priority not to intervene in this natural process, but we would like to give the oyster the time to mature to the indescribable quality. The life of the oyster still holds many secrets. From its seed to adulthood, the oyster will go through many stages that have not yet been established. So it is still unclear why and how the change from a female oyster to a male oyster occurs.

The oyster is very delicate and fragile. Many elements influence their growth: the tide of the tide, the water temperature and their salinity … These are the reasons why Jean Pierre Bernard works tirelessly to create the principles of optimal conditions in his farm. This is also why we find “Claire” in the name of the various oysters.

Choose and enjoy the oysters in the Lipp

Before the gourmet can enjoy the oysters, the oysters go through a final phase of maturation in the clear pools built on salt gardens. The name you find on our map depends on the time the oysters stay in the pool. It takes about two to three months for the fines de claires, and a maximum of 20 to 30 oysters can be placed on one square meter. The Spéciales de claires benefit from a very special treatment: no more than ten oysters per square meter for five to six months. As for the Clear shoots, they mature for around 6 to 8 months and, if all the quality conditions are met, we generally obtain them from mid-December and only in small quantities. All this attention and patience are rewarded with oysters that are neither too thin nor too large and of incomparable taste.
