I was wondering where  the restaurant Oysters from a Vending Machine is located ?
Is there a website. Can you tell us about the restaurant and where its located?

The place is La Huitriere de Re which if you leave off the La and add a dot com to the end, you'll get their web site!

I'd eat them. They're coming straight from the farm to the machine on a daily basis. And the price is pretty good, too. Reminds me of the pecan pie place down in Texas, I saw on TV no too long ago. They make pies and ship all over, but outside the store they have a pie vending machine for folks who get to the store late. I'd buy one of their pies and happily eat it. Same for the oysters.

What if the power went out for an hour or more and it came back on like nothing happened?
 
Oysters aren't pecan pies.

Hey, I buy bait from the vending machine at the sushi shop. What's the difference?

Wouldn't bother me in the least. I've seen oysters harvested and refrigeration is not a part of the process until they get to the restaurant, (unless they're being shipped long distance). All those oysters you get in NOLA came in a burlap sack that wasn't refrigerated. I've eaten oysters straight out of those bags, after they've been on the boat in the sunshine all day. Still here.

Intellectually I'd say no.  The inner teenager in me would say yes.
I'm closer to death than birth.
Totally do it.

Plus there's the fact that vending machines were only recently introduced into North Dakota and are still quite the novelty...
