Oyster Loaf Rundown

CollegeInnSign.JPGLast week, Mother Jones ran a story that credited the long-gone Gobey's Saloon in San Francisco with inventing the oyster loaf in 1926. This piqued the interest of Times-Pic food guy Brett Anderson, who investigated the matter a bit more fully, concluding that while there's not enough evidence that New Orleans actually invented, at the very least the oyster loaf in the mid- to late-1800s.
