Recommendations? Start with oysters on half shell, followed by steak

Anywhere in the boroughs or manhattan. Was thinking Peter Luger, but birthday boy is craving some raw oysters. And perhaps a decent beer? Preferably a setting that is not exceedingly extravagant.

  1. How about oysters and beer and cocktails at Marlow & Sons, walk over to PL for the steak

      That is GENIUS.....and then maybe Dressler, for a Peach Parfait and/or glass of St. Germain.....a trifecta, I say. :)

            If you're in Manhattan, the Old Homestead has excellent oysters and excellent steak. In Brooklyn, go to Marlow & Sons for oysters, then go next door to Diner for their grass fed steaks. Had a great NY strip last night.

              My last Visit to Old Homestead was over a Year ago....Had Oysters and a Medium Well Ribeye......Almost Crapped my Pants on the Train ride Home...BAD SCENE!!!!!!!!
              And 2 others in my party of 6 had the same experience.....
              I'm Not telling people to stay away from old homestead......Could've been a bad night.......Just saying, watch out with the Oysters :(
