I wanted something indulgent and comforting. Cheeses of the world are usually my crutch but I turned to the oysters at Coco 68 last night instead. On Sundays, the oysters are only $1 – making a dozen(usually $20) a thrifty 12 bucks! They also had inexpensive wines by the glass ranging in price from $5 to $8. My cheap-ass opted for the $5 white that was very tasty and fitting for my budget.
While I felt like I was making out like Bernie Madoff with my oysters and my wine, I noticed no one else at the restaurant was taking advantage of the reduced menu item. A lot of people have no taste for the briny slime that is a raw oyster, so that could have been the reason for the abstinence I witnessed. But I worried that maybe the other diners just didn’t know about the deal as its not really noted on the menu, so I thought I would mention it here for all the Greenpoint oyster lovers out there that are on a budget like me and don’t want to break the bank on little oceanic aphrodisiacs.
