Pearl Oyster Bar

18 Cornelia St. New York, NY 10014 | West Village | 212-691-8211

Location Description:

In emulation of the lobster pounds Down East, the modest bill of fare highlights the freshest seafood simply prepared, from the elemental Caesar salad with its pleasantly caustic dressing to the perfect clam chowder flavored with chives and smoked bacon to the lobster roll crammed full of meat. On a recent visit, the oyster roll was the best item, a mayo-smeared bun piled with 10 oysters so light they threatened to float up to the tin ceiling.
