NYC: Oyster Happy Hour at Grey Lady – Lower East Side

by Sanne

In New York, oyster happy hour means $1-dollar oysters and inexpensive drinks. It’s a great way to turn an ordinary school night into something, that feels like Saturday, and it’s a great deal for someone like me, who orders oysters by the dozen. At Grey Lady, they have $1-oysters all night on Mondays, which is just one of the reasons why this restaurant on the corner of Delancey & Allen St has grown to become one of my absolute favorite spots.

The happy hour oysters they serve varies, but they’re usually of the small-to-midsized briny kind, and they’re served with all the usual condiments. The tables outside are the best, but after sunset, it got a bit chilly, so we moved to another table inside the restaurant. It was nice to see Sue and Alex again, and we had a lot of catching up to do. All of us talk a lot, so the happy hour turned into a happy evening and lot and lots of oysters. Not a bad way to spend a Monday night.
