Choose from a simple menu of seafood dishes at this rustic East Village tavern. Raw oysters, shared cheese and charcuterie plates, and a few seafood entrées—like fettuccine with clams and beer-steamed mussels—make up the menu. Eight taps dispense local (New York's Kelso) and international (Belgium's Palm) craft beers.

Now here's a happy hour spot. Unfortunately I'm not the only one who knows that, which is why this place is perennially packed. 


I have no idea why it's called Upstate, but I don't really care. You're getting oysters and you're getting beer (ok, I got wine, but still). It's not a big place and probably not the happy hour spot if you're looking to pick up people, but it's a great nevertheless and you should go. Sit at the bar if you can. 


I have yet to try the fettuccine with clams, but I liked everything I had and I'll be coming back soon. Did I mention the pasta is served in its pot? Exactly.  Also, free whiskey cake at the end of your meal? Always acceptable.
