Mermaid Oyster Bar

Seafood in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

If you're craving a plate of oysters and don't mind a crowd, head to this West Village favorite. Happy hour is until 7pm daily (all night Monday) when you'll find young professionals crammed into the small restaurant unwinding over $7 glasses of champagne and $1 chef's-choice's oysters. Squeeze yourself into a spot at the bar and enjoy.

The small plates during regular dining hours are also worth coming for. Go with a group and share the perfectly charred Portuguese octopus with fingerling potatoes and a tostada served as a tasty pile of blue crab, black beans, avocado and queso fresco.
