The Mermaid Inn

Cuisine:Seafood. Price: $$$. Location: .

The Mermaid Inn has taken its East Village seafood celebrity status up to the Upper West Side with its second fish shack location. Nautical, New England-esque vibes set up the most ideal environment to slurp on raw oysters, sip on creamy clam chowder, and pick at baskets of fried calamari. $1 oysters and littleneck clams at happy hour are a steal and a half, and unfortunately not a secret at all, so get there early, or find yourself waiting until the deal is over. Make a Reservation.
