This midtown seafood eatery, from the team behind Almond, offers fish sandwiches by day and oysters and champagne at night. Look for lunch specials, including a po' boy stuffed with fried oysters and bacon, while dinner dishes run more upscale, like the house-made semolina linguine with clams or a dry-aged rib eye, plus a raw bar featuring a rotating cast of East and West Coast bivalves. Subway tiles, luncheonette booths and a salvaged mid-20th-century Shell sign recall fish shacks of yore.

L&W is one of my absolute favorites! From decor, to ambiance, to service and of course the food, this place exceeds all expectations! They have an amazing menu that features local and sustainably farmed ingredients and changes daily. Their "Get Shucked Up" Happy Hour harbors amazing deals on wine, beer, cocktails and can you say oysters for a dollah?! Yum. The restaurant gives an upscale crab shack vibe but the food blows any ordinary crab shack out of the water!! The service is excellent and the staff unforgettable. If you haven't sought out this gem yet, definitely give it a try!
