Pearl Oyster Bar

18 Cornelia St. New York, NY 10014(212)


I’ve been going to this place since it was only about eight bar stools and one four top. It was incredible then, and it’s still awesome, even though it’s about triple the size. And still serving up one of the best lobster rolls South of Maine. Sure, the wait is annoying and the fact that they don’t take reservations sucks, but if you just go a little on the early side, you’ll beat the crowds.

Also, a few other stand-outs, the fried oysters are so good we get them every time we go, and I don’t even really like fried oysters.

For dessert, the blueberry pie ala mode is also worth the splurge.

And last but not least, those of you who have heard that Mary’s Fish Camp is basically the same thing as she used to be the ex partner/lover of the owner of Pearl – yeah, well don’t believe it. I’ve been to both, and Mary’s is a VERY distant second. I’d rather wait an hour at Pearl than sit immediately at Mary’s (and no, Pearl didn’t pay me to say this).
