I really love for Oysters, and if you do too and are in NYC, these spots do it right:
Just re-opened this summer; may be the new Frying Pan alternative. I haven’t been yet, but it looks cool AF and oysters plus a boat is never a bad combo.
Swanky-swank spot that has $1 Happy Hour oysters, I’m into it.
Not my favorite for ambiance, but their selection is unbeatable.
If the Oyster happy hour isn’t enough to get you in the door (you may want to make a reservation to avoid long waits), the folding mermaid ‘fortune teller’ they give you at the end certainly is.
Situated in the Ace Hotel, they’ve earned my trust with winners like ‘Salvation Taco’ and ‘The Spotted Pig’.
