Upon walking through the door you would be forgiven for momentarily thinking you had entered a clean, well-lit, turn-of-the-century subway station. Really this panorama of floor to ceiling vintage tile is a temple to the gulf oyster. Order at least a dozen raw. Eat them plain or adulterated with lemon juice, hot sauce or horseradish. Other options include the famous oyster loaf; a pile of delicious fried bivalves dressed with mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato surrounded between slices of Texas toast with a pickle spear as garnish.

She baked her Granny's favorite pie recipes, and sold the slices after games of roshambo. Her next mission is to revolutionize the way women's jeans are made and sold at Qcut.Say hey hey on twitter » @skinny
