The lowdown

Oysters are never a cheap addiction, but no item on the small-but-inspired menu at Zadie’s Oyster Room, in the East Village, costs over $18, and if you visit Marco Canora’s convivial establishment between the hours of five and seven on any weekday evening, you can complement smoky trout pâté or a bowl of Manhattan-style clam chowder with an chef’s selection of oysters for just $1.50 each.
