Best Oysters in Manhattan
Where to go for the best? Freshest, best atmosphere, best selection? Thanks in advance!
Freshest: Blue Ribbon and Balthazar
Selection: Oyster Bar at GCS and Schaffer City
Atmosphere: Depends on your mood...
Grammercy Tavern had some excellent oysters last night. Furthermore they offer "tastes" (more than half of a "full" glass) of champagne. Which is nice if you don't want to get completely sloshed before other courses come out. Marlow and Son's in Williamsburg has great oysters as well. Lure Bar in Soho had a decent selection.
For more of a selections I would with halo's rec at Grand Central Station.
Freshest and best selection:Shaffer City. If atmosphere really matters (it never does to me), then Aquagrill gets the nod as a close second in the previous categories in a nicer place.
