Oyster happy hours?
Now that summer is here, I'm obsessed with finding oyster happy hours in Manhattan. Can anyone recommend good ones?
McCormick used to have dollar oyster specials for happy hours, not sure if still around.
I know Thalia has them, walked by and saw the sign.

Mermaid Inn is the best I've found with a rotating list of oysters. Essex, Belcourt, L'orange Bleue and Lure also have oyster happy hours worth mentioning, though they are usually limited to Malpeques or Bluepoints. Bobo just started an oyster happy hour and while their fried oysters are delicious, the raw oysters were improperly shucked with shards of shell tainting the meat.
