Oysters! Steamed or Barbecued - not raw - where to eat?

RichT | Feb 14, 201110:03 AM     2

Both my wife and I love oysters and used to always eat them raw - over time she's just become to reluctant because of rare potential health issues, and so we still enjoy them but now steamed or barbecued (I know, to all the purists out there, raw is definitely better).

Anyhow I'm wondering if there are any restaurants (or even dive bars) the hounds here could recommend for steamed or barbecued oysters. I've searched the manhattan boards and most of the "usual suspect raw bars" (Aquagrill, Grand Central, Lure, Pearls, Mermaids, etc) have great raw selections but not steamed or barbecured - we're trying to stay away from fried if possible.

Would prefer something below 14th street if possible but are willing to travel within Manhattan - we will be staying in the South Village.

Thanks!
