OK, this is short notice, but I figured I'd try here for a suggestion. I just found out that a friend is flying in from the East coast, arriving around 7pm this evening. He's in the mood for oysters, which sounds great to me as well. The obvious choice - Hogg Island - is out, because we won't be eating until at least 8 pm.
Can anyone suggest another great place for oysters in the city? We're more interested in a place where fresh oysters, or at least fresh seafood in general, is the focus; as opposed to a "nice" restaurant, that happens to have oysters as an appetizer.
