No-reservations clam shack-style joint whose simple seafood includes a revered lobster roll.
The Pearl Oyster Bar is an original of its kind in Manhattan. It opened up in 1997 and in addition serving delicious New England inspired dishes since, it has spawned many raw bars in its fashion. The owner and Chef, Rebecca Charles opened Pearl Oyster Bar before there was a lobster roll to be found in Manhattan. She reinvented Maine’s signature sandwich and other seaside staples from fried oysters and pan roasts to lobster stew, chowders and blueberry crumble pie.
The space is cozy, comfortable and classic. It's the perfect West Village spot for friends, parents or a date.
