    1. Schaffer's is great. Also, Jacks Oyster Bar is tiny but fun, but for the ultimate experience (and still casual) is the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station.

      1. Can't get any more casual than Live Bait on 23rd St.

        1. You can go early and sit at the bar at Blue Ribbon - outstanding oysters.

          1. My favorite place for cheap and casual oysters is Fish. They always have a good selection of both east and west coast oysters that changes daily. Also, their special with 1/2 dozen Blue Points with a glass of house wine or a pint of Pabst really can't be beat.

            If you go, get the twin tar tar too. Delish!
