Quartuccio, a renowned oyster diver from Long Island,
New York has been supplying oysters to New York City
restaurants for over 15 years. Harvesting oysters
year round from the icy waters of the Long Island
Sound takes determination, boldness, passion, and
a do what I gotta do attitude. He sought
a name for these oysters that exemplifies New York
and embodies the timeless qualities of passion and
boldness. His choice? The Naked Cowboy.
