mermaid oyster bar

i should just go ahead and state that this entire week is going to be about food in new york, as it is a thing that i love most. there were so many great places --  how could i not post about them?

i went to the mermaid oyster bar last summer when i was visiting new york and fell in love with their happy hour.  i'm not a huge raw oyster fan, but if you are then this is definitely a great find for you.  if not, there are a ton of other great options like their fish tacos and shrimp corndogs - yes, shrimp corndogs!  their happy hour goes from 5:30 to 7:00 and they have good prices on wine, champagne ($6 each) and cocktails ($7).  i love their lobster sandwich so much, that i broke down and ordered this pricey baby off the regular menu.  how could i refuse the massive chunks of lobster on a griddled brioche roll?  putting fries with old bay on the side, well that is perfection.

and if these pictures didn't convince you to go there, you should also know that they are huge believers in paying it forward.  they give to, which is a global microfinance organization that supports communities in need and helps alleviate poverty.  so if you live in new york, or are planning a trip there, make sure to add this to your list.
