The oysters are delicious. They're tiny, as seems to be the current trend (I'm estimating each oyster is around half the size of a European #3) but really very good.   Shrimps are listed as a raw ba

He's been a way a while, so maybe you've forgot your translation rubric - that's nearly a rave for an NYC resto. I just booked it,

It's a long-ish flat surface with a shelves full of liquor behind it and stools in front of it. And a guy on the other side serving drinks (but no one preparing food). I'm not sure what else to call it but a bar.

Now I wish I'd taken a more expansive picture.

Well, okay, but there is a counter with people preparing food behind it. And also this as yet unnamed area with a guy preparing drinks behind it. I could easily have gone in and just had a drink at this unnamed area. I chose to eat, but it would not have been awkward otherwise.

And then I went to Saluggi's to watch tennis and just had a drink, no food! Also met a guy who made me promise to introduce him to any age-appropriate single Jewish ladies that I knew. I only know one, I asked her, and she was not amenable (but honestly, she could do worse).

Just to drive this into the ground, Olmsted near me CLEARLY has a bar in the front and CLEARLY has a counter in the back.

Yeah, Saluggi’s is actually a bar that you can eat at. With TVs and stuff. It’s also like 4 times the size of Cervo’s where the only place to put the drink service area is behind a counter where people go to eat, not to just drink.
