Apps Only: Pearl Oyster Bar

New York Ben Fishner Post a comment

After last week's disappointing meal at the Fish Shack at BLT Fish, I felt it would only be fair to show everyone that there is such a thing as great restaurant serving the simple, delectable seafood of New England here in the city. Like Fish Shack, Pearl Oyster Bar is not a place to get a cheap meal, but unlike the Fish Shack, it is well worth it, serving food that's simple, delicious, and comforting, all with a warm smile.

Sugar Rush: Praline Parfait at Pearl Oyster Bar

New York Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

I've already raved about the killer Hot Fudge Sundae at Pearl Oyster Bar, and the Blueberry Crumble that rolls around each summer is no slouch. But there's yet another to add to that list: the Praline Parfait ($7), where the butterscotch is made in-house, a silky, slow-flowing concoction of butter, brown sugar, and plenty of cream. More

Ed McFarland Holds a Press Conference: Life Goes On

Ed Levine 25 comments

I visited both Ed's Lobster Bar and Pearl Oyster Bar yesterday, in search of a glimmer of sanity and truth in what is obviously a sea of resentment and betrayal. I found out that, yes, Ed's uses the same toilet paper as Pearl. And that he makes a good lobster roll with thicker french fries than Pearl's. And that, yes, his Caesar salad does have English muffin croutons, just like Pearl's. And that Pearl's fried oyster roll is so deliciously crunchy, crisp, and briny I could have it every day for lunch. But I also found a beleaguered Ed McFarland, in way over his head as he tries to make sense of all this. McFarland held a press conference... More

Ed Levine 17 comments

Rebecca Charles, chef-owner of Pearl Oyster Bar in New York City and subject of an incredibly lively discussion on Serious Eats, is mad as hell and she's not going to take it any more. She's suing her most recent imitator, Ed McFarland, her former sous-chef of six years, for purposefully stealing her concept, menu, and look and feel in opening his own restaurant, Ed's Lobster Bar, less than a mile from Pearl. "I've looked the other way for years," Rebecca said. "I understand that chefs take dishes from the restaurants they worked in when they open their own restaurants. But Ed's Lobster Bar is much more than a knock-off. It's an exact duplicate of Pearl. Thirty-one of the 34 dishes... More
