One of my long-standing favorites for Happy Hour. Arrive with time to spare (to secure a bar seat!). Happy Hour at the bar only. Dollar Oysters. Nice wine for $7. Seafood is great here and staff very professional. Kind of a Midtowny after-work place!

Had a business dinner at Docks in Manhattan. The service was very good, and the Lobster Risotto was as good as you'll get in Italy!
