It may not be the best place to find delicious oysters, but it’s an entertaining place to visit. And if you’re lucky, there’ll be a bit of a wait for a table, and while you’re in line on the sidewalk, you can observe the ladies from the Penthouse Club* across the street taking their breaks on the balcony and various staggeringly drunk people trying to get down the street. The time passes surprisingly quickly.

*Also, you can read the Yelp reviews. Our favorite was the one-star review written by someone who’d been two times in three days. Apparently he wanted to make certain his first, awful, visit wasn’t a one-off situation. You’ve got to admire his dedication to research, I guess.
