$29 -- Leadbelly: Oysters & Cocktails for 2 on LES, Reg. $67

Sold out - This deal was published April 17, 2013 and sold out April 27, 2013.
By Travelzoo Staff
The Leadbelly is "as retro as its sibling, Fat Radish ... is hip and Brit," says The New York Times. For $29 (regularly $67), Travelzoo subscribers can share oysters, hearty small plates and cocktails at this LES spot where "time stands still" (UrbanDaddy).

Why we love it

  • Retro LES oyster bar by The Fat Radish team
  • Zagat calls it a "chic, ramshackle room"
  • UrbanDaddy raves about its Wes Andersonian vibe
  • For $29, 2 can share half a dozen oysters, small plates and cocktails
  • For $10 more, upgrade to a full dozen oysters

What's included

  • With this Local Deal, two can take a seat next to a built-in piano or vintage record player in a "chic, ramshackle room" (Zagat) and unwind over:
  • Two menu plates, such as truffle fries with Parmesan or bacon-wrapped, cider chili-glazed brussels sprouts
  • Half a dozen oysters, like the Kumamoto, Wash., oysters with notes of melon or the Chatham, Mass., oysters with toothy rounded meat
  • Two cocktails, such as The Gin LB with Creme Yvette, elderflower and rosemary or the Tequila Rose with grapefruit, lime, beet juice, jalapeno and agave
  • Or for $10 more, get twice as many oysters: $39 gets a dozen oysters (a $34 value) plus two plates and two cocktails.

The atmosphere is super cute.

The service here really needs improvement. This was a great deal, but it took us over an hour to get oysters, deviled eggs and toast. Our server was MIA the entire evening and it was impossible to get a glass of wine.

Everything. The cocktails had fresh ingredients, the food was top quality and although it was a little slow service wise because it was so busy, everyone was extremely nice. Happy to go back again any time.

No. It's great.

Drinks, oysters, food, live music.

Wait time, not enough wait staff.

ambience, cocktails, food

service was a little show at first, but it was crowded.

Jul 03, 2013 Jennifer New York, United States

Nice place, great crowd ,tasty cocktails that actually had alcohol in them ,tasty small plates and fresh oysters. Good service.

Long wait but probably because voucher was expiring- I'd seen a lot of people with printouts.Still,20 minutes wait for happy hour special drink? It should be there in the bucket ! Plates could be bigger (or cheaper).Cool looking seating is not comfortable . But all that not so bad to keep me from turning in if passing by.
