Also on Monday nights, the Hungry Cat in Santa Monica serves half-price oysters, meaning a dozen will cost about $16. The Hungry Cat also specializes in wines that pair perfectly with oysters. The restaurant typically has both local varieties of oysters as well as some from the Pacific Northwest and the East Coast.
Messhall has $1 oysters on Tuesday nights along with $5 beers. The catch, however, is that the restaurant only offers one variety of oyster at this price from the five or so types on the menu. Diners must pay market price, about $3 per oyster, for other varieties.
