The Golden Hour

There’s a big courtyard outside the High Line Hotel, and, every summer, it has some kind of pop-up. Currently, that pop-up is a restaurant called The Golden Hour. It’s a seafood-focused place from the people behind Maison Premiere, and it’s the closest you’ll get to a semi-tropical vacation in Chelsea. The outdoor space is full of ferns, trees, and various other plants that we couldn’t identify because we aren’t horticulturalists - and there are also some striped umbrellas and at least one tiki torch. Like Maison Premiere, the oyster selection here is excellent, and there are a lot of shareable things like ceviche and crudo. The cocktails are also great. So if you want to get drinks and shellfish, this place is an excellent option. As long as it isn’t cold or raining. Because it’s all outdoors.

Sel Rrose review image

A cocktail bar that specializes in oysters, and has a very solid burger. Sel Rrose isn't our favorite oyster hangout, but it's definitely one you should know about.

Pilot review image

Pilot is a restaurant/bar on a boat in Brooklyn Bridge Park, and it’s a great place to eat oysters outside (as long as you don’t get seasick).

Grand Banks review image

If the Queen Mary just ended up being a nicely appointed tug boat loaded with alcohol and raw oysters, you’d have Grand Banks. Load up on ceviche and fried veggies, just make sure you aren’t prone to motion sickness.
