Bar in Brooklyn: Williamsburg, Greenpoint & Bushwick

Slurp down briny oysters, sweet clams, tangy ceviches and well-matched wines at this charming wine bar and cevicheria, an outpost of the East Village original. Sitting on 18 seats at the raw bar, diners connect with the chefs tailoring their meal. Come Sunday or Monday for $1 oysters and cheap drinks, or get the same deal from 6pm to 8pm nightly.

Adventurous diners: don't miss the 'bong-smoked' oysters, which take smoky notes from Lapsang tea leaves (not marijuana, lest you were wondering). Out back there's a discreet cocktail bar sporting vintage-map wallpaper and vaguely colonial-era decor.
