Lower East Side
New York's bivalve obsession isn't ending anytime soon—joining shucking newcomers Littleneck and Leadbelly is this bi-level oyster bar from nightlife vet Rob Shamlian (Los Feliz, Fat Baby). At the 12-seat marble-topped bar, slurp down raw-bar items like East Coat bivalves, jumbo Alaska king crabs, and oyster shooters capped with caviar, jalapeño and citrus soy. In the marble-and-mahogany dining room, the kitchen menu—overseen by James Beard Award winner Bradford Thompson (Miss Lily’s)—is equally sea-focused: fried oysters on mini brioche, Dungeness crab cakes and a lobster twist on classic fish-and-chips. Cocktails nod to the nautical, with lobster stock used as the base of the Michelada (beer, tomato juice, Old Bay–salted rim), while the surfer-friendly Point Break is made with lemon-grapefruit cordial, tequila and Cocchi Americano. The wine program is finely tuned to seafood pairings, with oyster-friendly muscadet and mauzac whites available by glass.
