P&J Oyster Company is the oldest continuously operating oyster house in America. Since 1876, it has been cultivating, harvesting, processing, and selling the delicious mollusks to the finest restaurants and the most discriminating retail customers. In 1889, Antoine's created Oysters Rockefeller with P&J oysters. The company's oysters also were present at the creation of Oysters Bienville and many other classic New Orleans oyster dishes. Chef Leah Chase, widely recognized as the "queen of Creole cooking," has never allowed any other oyster in her kitchen.
