The John Dory Oyster Bar in New York City

Jonah Crab

Shellfish was exactly the top-up that I needed after dinner tonight, so I made my way to this shop, which I noticed on my way to the Breslin last night (1196 Broadway, 212-792-9000). And I was extremely happy with that Jonah crab above. It's the east coast version of a Dungeness, and the flesh was nearly as delicate and sweet too. But the best thing was the tomalley, which was richer and smoother than Dungeness. I liked this much more than when I first tried it in Boston a few years ago, and I nearly ordered another one. I suspect that I'll be back here again soon, especially since this place has great cocktails too.
