Jack’s Luxury Oyster Bar (CLOSED)
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
The move from its original townhouse home to a smaller space around the corner hasn’t hurt Jack and Grace Lamb’s quirky little restaurant. They kept it stylish, using the same red-and-white checkered wallpaper and offbeat accents (e.g., bird figurines) as before. The result is a great East Village date spot with a bicoastal selection of oysters that rotates daily, lobster every which way and serious wines ($40 to $2,000 a bottle). The small plates are delicious: lobster-knuckle chowder full of meat and sweet corn; plump clams and rounds of chorizo in garlicky broth; sea bass perfectly steamed in parchment; and tender butter-poached lobster.
