I was inspired by Jonathan Gold's account of the time he ate a live prawn at the Living Fish Center in LA. You can here the account here, it starts at ~11:50

He had this experience at a Korean restaurant, but I'm curious about the notion of eating anything that's obviously alive and moving (I feel as though oysters often are live (maybe not?), but they're a bit far removed and generally immobile). It would be an interesting experience to look into the eyes of a wriggling prawn before eating it!

Any suggestions on that topic would be welcome!

Also, does anyone know of any generally "bizarre" restaurants in town? I have a friend in town who enjoys pushing the limits of dining and he's looking for any recommendations of strange dining options, preferably ones that are specific to NYC but I think just being strange and "out there" would be enough. We're going to WD50 tonight which seems to intrigue him, if you'd like to use that as a touchstone. But feel free to go beyond that since it doesn't strike me as being too outre!

Thanks for any input on either topic!
