An Urban Oyster Bar in NYC

December 18, 2012

On a quick visit to NYC a couple of weeks ago, a group of us were desperate to dine at Fat Radish on the Lower East Side. No luck. Instead, we headed across the street to Silkstone's new venture, Leadbelly, an oyster bar with nightly live music and an urban clam shack vibe.

The interiors have a stripped-down, perfectly-imperfect look (similar to Fat Radish) as well as a long copper-covered bar reminiscent of Parisian grand cafes; the oyster list features picks from suppliers like Naked Cowboy, and the cocktail list is full of options like the Dirty Lemonade (jalapenos are involved). For more information, go to Leadbelly.
