Any recommendations for a shellfish tower in manhattan? Or individual plates where shellfish really shines?

            If I call correctly it's a collection of oysters (west and east), clams, shrimp, crab and the piece de resistance - a whole lobster split in half.

            Sets you back a cool 2 bills.

              Whelks, too, last time I had it, as well as the excellent Parker House rolls.

              Also, the price varies depending on the number of people. I believe it's for $50 for two, $130 for four, and $195 for six.

        1. Keens has a huge and delicious seafood platter (different shape, same concept)

          1. Aquagrill is also known for ultra fresh shellfish tower.

              I second Aquagrill. Ultra fresh indeed.

            2. The ones at Balthazar have always worked for me.
