The Best Thing We Ate: Roasted oysters at Bo's Kitchen and Bar Room

The Dish: Four Montauk pearl oysters served in a thick French onion sauce and coated with melted grana padano cheese

The Price: $15

The Setting: Bo's is one Big Easy dining room in the Big Apple without the tacky beads. Chef Todd Mitgang's cajun creation is spacious and elegant, and follows along the lines of his approachable seafood oasis Crave Fishbar.

Tasting Notes: Creamy, crispy, and downright delicious, this dish appears like its meant to be shared, but we'd rather have it all to ourselves. Using our hands to delicately shift the oyster from plate to mouth is a strategy well rewarded, though we suggest chewing slowly to enjoy every last bite. Good thing Bo's starts off the meal with a serving of monkey bread: the thick, sweet slices make the perfect tool for soaking up the oyster sauce.
