An uptown institution, Pascale’s Manale has been around since 1913, located on Napoleon Avenue near the St. Charles streetcar stop. To get to the restaurant, one must enter through the bar. Some patrons—quite a few, actually—never make it into the dining room. Instead they find themselves in the care of bartenders with an old-school sensibility, slurping down oysters at the standing-only, marble-topped oyster bar and chatting with Uptown bluebloods, adventurous tourists and the voluble shucker.

What to drink
Cold schooners of basic draft beer, or an Herbsaint to go with your oysters.
Pay for oysters at the bar when you order drinks (cash only), then bring your token over to the oyster bar. The shucker will keep bringing you briny bivalves until you meet your quota. Smart money gets two-dozen oysters to start.
