Village Voice's Description

Beer and oysters are a winning combo no matter how you serve them. We know it, and Sean Covey, the owner of Upstate, does
too. At his tiny, brick-walled East Village eatery, you'll find an
ever changing menu of East and West Coast bivalves. On recent visits we've sampled tasty Dabob Bay, Oakland Bay, Point Julia, Hood Canal, Meetinghouse, and Bras d'Ors varieties, among others, all priced at about $2 a pop. The kitchen also puts out larger plates like bouillabaisse (sadly lacking in both saffron and tomato) and beer-steamed clams, though these tend to be less successful than the raw bar items.

  • AskMen on 11/04/11

    8 handles pulling brew like 21st Amendment's Back in Black IPA, Empire Cream Ale and Mother's Milk Stout from Keegan Ales.

  • Owner Shane Covey says he doesn't own a freezer and prepares the seafood simply: “We just put the fish on the plate so people understand the value of it.”

  • Dens on 06/01/12

    Best grilled salmon, best scallops, best oysters to be found in the East Village. Killer $12 oysters & beers happy hour too. Nothing on the menu disappoints.
