oyster pic What started out as a simple idea by Skip Bennett in 1992 has turned into a worldwide bivalve sensation known as Island Creek Oysters, which sells more than 100,000 a week. Today, most major restaurants in Boston offer the made-in Duxbury oysters but the brand, which has grown to be one of the largest oyster companies in the country, has also become a worldwide sensation. They are now even being flown into the JW Marriott in Hong Kong so it isn’t surprising Bennett and Co. would open an oyster bar at the Hotel Commonwealth in Kenmore Square where you can slurp some of the best oysters in the world.
