      If you love oysters, then I'd do an oyster tasting at Aquagrill. Otherwise, I'd head to Balthazar or Blue Ribbon Brasserie (I really like their New Orleans shrimp & I think they have a slighter larger selection). Lure's is overpriced by a little bit and I didn't think the quality was as good. I also love Pearl Oyster bar but usually end up getting the lobster roll & the fried oysters, less so the raw bar stuff.
