Black Crescent is a little bar on the Lower East Side that’s a little more grown-up than most of the other places in the neighborhood, and it’s a good spot to go when you want to grab a drink and a snack instead of dancing and/or doing sake bombs. Along with oysters, they serve small seafood plates like octopus and ceviche, but you shouldn’t plan on eating a full dinner here. Maybe just bring some people from the office for an afterwork happy hour. They have cheap beer and dollar oysters from 6-8pm, and your coworkers will be impressed that you know of such a place.
