UD - Two Big Developments in Oyster Eating
SHELL GAME

Two Big Developments in Oyster Eating

1. The John Dory Oyster Bar now takes reservations. This is glorious. 2. That legendary Maison Premiere post-work oyster situation you could never make it to—you know, the one with a massive list of $1 oysters—well, now it happens on the weekends. Delicious. Bivalve. Justice.

Sunday

UD - Mamba Brunch at the Lion
THE LION KING

Mamba Brunch at the Lion

Nine out of 10 doctors suggest some form of cha-cha immediately after Bellini consumption. That must be the rationale behind this: the Lion’s serving you brunch while a band by the name of Grupo Irék does Cuban music. (Also, we totally made up that doctor thing.)

411:

Sundays, 11am-3pm, The Lion, 62 W 9th St (between 5th and 6th), 212-353-8400
