Oyster House, one of the city’s best raw bars, is perfect for a few different situations. Come for a post-work Happy Hour, when you can get a-buck-a-shuck oysters and $3 oyster shooters, with a coworker you’ve been putting off getting to know. Or, since they only take reservations for groups larger than six people, walk-in with a friend when you want to knock back a few shelled creatures and split a bottle of wine. And if you do have a big group of people, reserve one of their their “dump dinners,” which is a New England-style clambake where they dump buckets of seafood onto one of their long tables for everyone to dive into.
