Some people consider oysters an aphrodisiac, mainly because of the oysters’ ability to croon Al Green songs over dinner. I’m so in love with you with this Groupon.

Tables of two pair oysters—which are delivered fresh daily—with a choice of a signature martini or house champagne.
Eats on Lex
Oysters, martinis, and burgers take center stage at Eats on Lex, where the oysters roll in fresh daily, the martinis range from classic to chocolate raspberry, and the burgers are formed from dry-aged beef. Beyond its ornate cornice, guest dig into a menu of upscale American pub food in a modern, yet cozy, dining room—characterized by clean lines, rich woods, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Bloody-mary oyster shooters, huevos rancheros, and french toast with vanilla cream and strawberries fill bellies at brunch time, and lunch and dinner dishes include spicy lamb-meatball sandwiches and new york strip sandwiches. Bartenders mix an array of specialty martinis and cocktails behind the gleaming stone bar, including a cucumber martini and peach margarita, both of which pair well with your frenemy's new dress. More than an oyster bar and eatery, Eats on Lex also draws customers with occasional live jazz and happy hour specials.
