Where to go for oysters and champagne

piegirl74 | Jun 3, 201011:55 AM

When we go get our marriage license in a few weeks, we are going to have a special day to ourselves (a pretend elopement, if you will). Was going to book lunch at EMP, but my finance has been craving oysters lately and I don't think oysters and champagne seems like a terrible idea at all!

But...where should we go? Quality and value are more important than ambiance. We often get oysters as an app when out, but have never gone anywhere exclusively for oysters as the main event.

I have seen posts about where to go for happy hour deals which is not what we are after. Also seen mentions of places like Shaffer City, but I have no idea if that fits the bill.

It would be nice if the place has good soups (or something) offerings as well to supplement (Im thinking a french onion soup following by a dozen oysters - for each of us, naturally!).

Finally, my fiance hates sitting at the bar to eat - so, we will definitely want a table.

Any ideas? (Totally flexible on neighborhood and price - as long as it's a good value, Im not looking at cost per person).

Thanks in advance!
