Celebrate all things oysters in Las Vegas when National Oyster Day rolls around Aug. 5. Here’s a look at five restaurants in Las Vegas that serve up some great oysters.

1 AquaKnox

AquaKnox, known for its seafood and global cuisine, serves a seasonal selection of oysters that are only two to four days out of the water. The restaurant only buys exclusively from Blue Island Oyster Company recognized nationally for consistent quality. This summer, the restaurant has Kiwi Cups from Waiheke Island, New Zealand. When it's summer in the United States, it's winter in New Zealand, so this oyster is a great alternate during the off-season of West Coast oysters. Kiwi Cups are overflowing with crunchy, sweet meat reminiscent of cantaloupe rind and a crispy clean snap of light salinity on the tongue.

2 Bouchon

Thomas Keller’s Bouchon celebrates National Oyster Day with two seafood platters. The Grand Plateau for $118 features a lobster, 16 oysters, four shrimp, eight clams, 10 mussels and ceviche. The Petit Plateau for $70 features a half lobster, eight oysters, two shrimp, four clams and eight mussels.

3 SushiSamba

The restaurant that blends Brazilian, Peruvian and fresh Japanese dishes highlights its crispy minter sweet oyster with butter lettuce for National Oyster Day. Try the sweet and savory combination of osetra caviar, scallion, spicy sweet and sour mignonette, available for $15.

4 Table 10

Table 10, a New Orleans-inspired eatery by chef Emeril Lagasse, is celebrating National Oyster Day with happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. to close with $1.50 West Coast oysters.
Grand Canal Shoppes, 702-607-6363

5 Emeril's New Orleans Fish House

Emeril Lagasse's first restaurant in Las Vegas serves a four pack of oysters shucked and served on the half shell with horseradish spiked cocktail sauce and lemons for $11 from 2 to 6 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. to close.
