I tried, but I HATE OYSTERS! Is there hope....

Kathy | Jan 25, 2000 09:33 PM

My boyfriend is accompanying me to Manhattan in March to attend a conference. Mind you, we've never been, and we live far, far away in a very sheltered environment. (A bit of tongue in cheek here...but we are very, very excited!) Anyway, he loves oysters and recently prepared some for me in the hopes that I would finally see the light about oysters. I almost gagged.

Lately he's been reading my travel guides and out of the blue, said let's have dinner at the Oyster Bar. Rolling my eyes, I asked, "WHAT oyster bar??" Well, the one in Grand Central....of course.

Well, I've read their menu on-line and concede that there may be some other options.... Can anyone recommend a nice entree there? I love crab, lobster and swordfish.

Also, is the view from "The View" at the Marriot Marquis really the only good thing about that restaurant? That's where we're staying. Thank you!
