at either a manhattan fishmonger or oyster bar or seafood rest.
Believe it or not, St Andrew's Bar, known for it's unbelievable Scotch selection BUT they have wonderfully fresh oysters, usually keep three varieties on hand and the choice changes.
A bunch of markets have some great Belons...any interest in those?
Grand Central Oyster Bar
I have not tried the raw oysters at grand central, but the pan roasts have literally no flavour. What an amazing space though.
Blasphemy! Their pan roasts are sublime. But for oysters on the half shell, I'd go with Blue Ribbon
Sorry Yaqo I think that is a very liberal usage of the word "sublime" as when I tasted the pan roast there was literally zero taste.Then again that was probably 10 years ago.
Did you say Belon???? I want Belon!! Where can I find them?
Noticed them recently at Wild Edibles...they may be a regular item, not sure.
Same here - I'll be by there this weekend, I'll see if they have them, ask if they are a regular item nowadays, etc....
Second Citarella: good selection, helpful staff --
Wild Edibles, either at GCT, or their primary location (East side, 30's?)?
blue ribbon in Soho or Park Slope, get a dozen oysters and some fried chicken at 2am and you are doing pretty well.
the "peace passage" oyster nigiri at sushi yasuda is incredible and worth the $100 you will spend before you get out the door..
I agree about those oysters at yasuda - unbelievable.
oh my god...the peace passage oyster gives me food orgasms.
seriously, best oyster ever.
for other types, ive yet to find a fresher oyster than at fresh in tribeca.
I've also been very happy with the oysters at Citarella.
