Ordering beyond the signature dish

During a trip to NYC my sister and I went to Pearl Oyster Bar. While we loved the lobster roll (sorry Kenji), what really blew me away was the fried oysters and salt crusted shrimp! It got me thinking about dishes that are as good, if not better than the dish that a place is known for.

Anything that we should order instead of the most popular/famous dish?
