    Mara's Homestyle on E 6th bet 1&2 has great Lousiana oysters flown in fresh. Monday special only 50 cents each.
    I also like the Oyster Bar at Grand Central, great selection, sit at the Oyster Bar and slurp a dozen.

      I like Aquagrille on Spring Street. Family owned little gem of a seafood place and they have an ample variety of fresh oysters on any given day. http://www.aquagrill.com/homepage.htm . And specifically for oysters there: http://www.aquagrill.com/oysterspage.htm .

      Went there for a birthday, and it was a lovely and memorable experience. Wrote a letter thanking the owners and they actually wrote back! A unique and special spot downtown...

                The best bang for your buck might be the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market, as cheap as 69 cents a piece, with a good selection
