We love oysters. A lot. But they’re expensive. The key is to get ’em when they won’t break the bank. So make up an excuse and leave work early for happy hour, or spend your weekends day drinking and doing some slurping.
The menu is filled with excellent small plates, and some impressive meats (don’t sleep on the rotisserie chicken or the duck confit), but it’s also home to a solid oyster deal – $1 from 3-7pm every day, along with a couple great drink specials.
There aren’t many arenas better for oyster shooting in NYC. We love this place. It’s the ideal post work hang for when you don’t want to commit to a full meal. Have a drink, eat some oysters, look at pretty people, and listen to some live music.
Virgola is a small Italian wine bar you’ve probably never heard of until now. They have $1 oysters all day, and it’s a great place to go on a casual date, or just hang at the bar by yourself and potentially end up on a casual date with a stranger.
