New oyster place in East Village

It looks like the owners of Jewel Bako have opened a very small oyster place across the street from their restaurant on 5th between 2nd and 3rd. It's a tiny, sparkling place with red-checked tablecloths and a chandelier. They say they opened Friday. A brief glance at the menu revealed that oysters were 2 dollars each (not listed on the menu.) They also had lobster "out of its shell" for 24. I remember they had some desserts that looked old-fashioned and interesting but I can't remember what they were. (Bear with me... I was coming off many, many glasses of sake.) The only cooked thing I remember on the menu was pig cheeks, which the very nice manager said was "fantastic." I guess I'll have to take her word for it.

It's called Jack's Oyster Place or something like that.
