There's no better way to inspire envy among your shellfish-loving friends than to tell them you dined on the freshest possible PEI mussels. But if you're looking to really impress them, discuss the distinction between Malpeques and Raspberry Points, or between Colville Bays and Lucky Limes. These and more "boutique" oyster brands can be enjoyed at many of our local restaurants and pubs.
