 If you’re not an hospitality insider, The Oyster House is kicking off Shad Week tonight. The migratory fish is only in season for a short time and Oyster House is serving up a special three-course dinner for $40 through Saturday, March 17th.

The menu includes:

Pickled Shad with beets, cucumbers, crème fraiche and rye croutons

Smoked Shad Roe Croquette with confit shad emulsion and pickled spring onion

Seared Shad with fava beans, grilled cippolini, pea tendrils and romesco

And for anyone who is wondering, Fishtown’s Shad Fest is scheduled for April, 28th.
