Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield (The Spotted Pig, The Breslin) are the golden-touch team behind The John Dory Oyster Bar. The earlier, more formal incarnation of John Dory was in Chelsea; this version is snazzy and relaxed. Rather than full-blown meals, the menu concentrates on small plates, including an extensive raw bar, oysters Rockefeller, burrata with trout caviar and oyster pan roast with uni crostini. Expert cocktails via Sasha Petraske (Milk & Honey) and wines on tap are highlights of the beverage program. The basement kitchen offers a chef's table that can seat 12.
