Map
11-15 Swallow St., London, England W1B 4DG, United Kingdom

In London, the finest oysters tend to be found in rarefied settings, at hyper-polished, clubby places like Wiltons and Bentley's. The latter has been here since 1914-oh, the stories its marble bar must have been privy to over the years. Bentley's ur-English fish pie is the stuff of legend, but oysters are the main event. Sit at the bar and let the amiable shuckers prepare you a dozen (if available) of the rare European flat oyster, which has a round, scallop-like shell, a fibrous, almost crunchy texture, and a tangy, metallic aftertaste-like licking a penny.
