Oysters in Bklyn (.) ?

It's been awhile since anyone had something to say about them, aside from Marlow and Sons. I'm wondering if there's something nice(r) to be had, closer to Prospect Park, for a very special birthday treat.

Or is Marlow and Sons just the ne plus ultra?

                $1 happy hour. and drinks!! Thank you sam1 and other oyster lovers!
                Can anyone weigh in on whether BFC is nice enough for a birthday, and whether it gets crowded (we're going on Saturday eve.), if they run out, etc.

                They say the New York harbor once had bedfuls of oysters the size of dinner plates... who isn't a size queen, when it comes to them?
