Posted this over on IN today. Shout-out to the awesome Dorothy for getting me obsessed with oysters.
Little screams “summer in New York” more than oysters on the half shell. Preferably paired with a glass of crisp white wine or bubbly at happy hour. The refreshing almost-decadence of the whole experience lets us revel in the heat - or, really, air conditioning - rather than whine about it. After all, oysters just aren’t quite the same in winter.
In this city that practically invented oysters on the half shell, options for happy hour deals abound. But without the right atmosphere, the whole experience is, if you’ll excuse the pun, a little dead in the water. After all, who really wants oysters in a dive bar or with a mediocre glass of wine, no matter how good the price?
Luckily for you, we’ve done our research (and, let us tell you, it was hard eating all those oysters) and have culled the best of the best around this mollusk happy hour mecca. Trust us, you’ll thank us.
