$1 Oysters All Day at Grillfish, Plus a New Seafood Market

We’re deep in the ‘R’ months* so we’re all about eating ALL the oysters.

Pre-COVID, one of DC’s absolute best Happy Hour deals were the $1 oysters at Grillfish in Foggy Bottom. Now that Grillfish has re-opened (after a sweet renovation to its block, we might add!), the neighborhood’s favorite seafood spot is back in action, with a perfect patio for outdoor Fall dining, fresh menu items, an all-new takeout seafood market, and the best oyster deal you’ll find anywhere in the city.

That right, that $1 oyster HH deal runs all day. Meaning you can get half — or a full dozen — local oysters for just $1 apiece.

And you can even shuck them yourself if you want to. As part of Grillfish’s new Seafood Market concept, patrons can take prepared foods, or any of a variety of shellfish and finfish, home to make themselves. While it’s exciting to have a place to find 100% sustainable swordfish, salmon, and (farm-raised) striped bass right in the neighborhood, we predict that it’s Grillfish’s Oyster Kits that will be popular Fall garden party gear.

Each kit ($9.50) comes with an oyster knife, heavy-duty gloves, lemons, cocktail sauce, and those seriously important instructions. Shuck-’em-yourself oysters just 95 cents apiece.

*With improvements in shipping and refrigeration, as well as oyster farming techniques, the ‘R’ month thing is now a myth. Happy oyster shucking and slurping!
