The Merchant Kitchen and Drinks invites oyster lovers to start or finish the workweek with a sweet deal. Sneak out of work a bit early and head to Downtown Crossing on an upcoming Monday or Friday from 4:00-9:00pm to have your fill of freshly shucked bivalves for just a buck apiece. Pretend it’s summer for a bit with a pile of half-shells and drinks at their 40-foot bar or sit down to an oyster night with drinks and plates from their American-leaning scratch menu (buffalo cauliflower, smoked pork ribs, calamari with pickled peppers and more). Mask up and make sure to bring proof of your vaccination card, so you don’t miss out on this buck-a-shuck deal. For more info call 617.482.6060.
