5 of the Best Oyster Bars in NYC

I really love for Oysters, and if you do too and are in NYC, these spots do it right:

Grand Banks


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.

Maison Premiere


Swanky-swank spot that has $1 Happy Hour oysters, I’m into it.

Grand Central Oyster Bar

Not my favorite for ambiance, but their selection is unbeatable.

The Mermaid Inn


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.

The John Dory Oyster Bar

Situated in the Ace Hotel, they’ve earned my trust with winners like ‘Salvation Taco’ and ‘The Spotted Pig’.
