Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar
2nd Ave at 6th (E. Village)
Over all, I would say the food here is excellent. The oysters are fresh and briny and the service is pretty friendly. However it is very easy to rack up your bill. These plates don't come cheap and there isn't much to them. Between the three of us, 18 oysters, 4 dishes and a half bottle of wine came out to $120 not including tip. I'd come back for a special occasion but wouldn't make it a regular spot.
Momofuku Milk Bar

I don't even remember how much any of this crap was, that's how good it tasted. Has DC redeemed himself? Not yet. But we'll see.
