Why a landlocked city like Paris associates itself so closely to the Oyster is a mystery

Last year we celebrated Christmas morning at Au Pied de Cochon with Oysters and French Onion Soupe

We remember seeing street carts selling crates of oysters on New Years Eve in the 7e (arrondisement)
Many establishments offer extravagant seafood platters.
