Pier 41 Image

Hours: Dinner (Mon.-Sat.)

Price: $$

Pier 41 has arguably the best happy hour in town. What sounds like hyperbole can be backed up by fact: $1 oysters and $1 Champagne from 4-7 p.m. every day they’re open, including Friday and Saturday nights. The defense rests. They also have a bloody mary that will put all others to shame, and will make you the queen or king of Instagram for a day. Coming in at 20 ounces and $35, this meal in a glass has Dixie pepper vodka and enough Armoracia rusticana to choke a horse. But the murky beverage also comes with a delightful spread, all perched on top: four fried oysters, three chilled shrimp, and a giant king crab leg. It’s the kind of thing that makes adjoining tables order what she’s having. The best part is the food is solid: The oysters are crisp, yet juicy, and the peel-and-eat shrimp are paired with pepperoncini, an unexpectedly agreeable sweet foil. And did I mention the king crab leg? You had me at king crab leg. —Vanessa Wolf (Dish, Winter 2019)
