    The happy birthday section prefix section where you share a lobster and 16 oysters with shrimp is killer. Makes you feel better about dropping 80+ with friends. Be split it

    One of the best oyster places in the city. The staff here clearly cares about their oyster program and takes pride in their selections. Excellent variety as well as small plates. Will be back asap.

    Super rad bartender (I think his name was John?). If you're feelin adventurous, have him whip up a cocktail for you based on your likings. You won't be disappointed. HH oysters $1 on the weekend too.

    One of my favorite oyster bars in the city. After you're done filling up on oyster happy hour, check out the bacon wrapped scallops.

    Order a Painkiller from Chris or Terrence, tell them I sent you, and they'll give you extra cherries

    Try the Peekytoe Crab Toast and just about any batter-fried fish that's on the menu.

    This place is like, if Long Island made an actually classy/casual beach bar (opposed to the ones that attempt to imitate that) and then oh yeah, moved it to the LES.

    Billed as a Nantucket bar. It ain't. And it's kinda dirty. But selection of Cisco brews on tap is good.
