Oyster Bar

4 of 12

On the Show: Sterling Cooper partner Roger Sterling calms his nerves about
landing the Nixon account over a lunch of oysters and martinis. When the elevator at the Madison
Avenue office is out of order, Sterling is forced to climb all 16 floors back to work—and
promptly vomits at his clients’ feet. (Season 1)

In Reality: Under the main terminal near the Grand Central Dining Concourse, the
beloved Oyster Bar is a sea of suits after work—and has one of the biggest and
freshest selections of the briny shellfish in the city.

Best If You’re: A partner at an advertising firm with an expense account.
Don’t let the diner décor fool you—the menu isn’t cheap.
