McManus Brothers Oyster Bar
After more than a decade pleasing crowds at prestigious London markets like Borough, Portobello, Spitalfields and Covent Garden, McManus Brothers Oyster Bar brings its classic prosecco and oysters combo to Bangkok on the ground-floor terrace of Thonglor's 72 Courtyard nightlife complex.
An ocean-blue hand-painted sign and a Union Jack flag point the way to this petite booth where Darren McManus and his wife Saovanee hope to change the perception of oysters being a luxury item fit only for fancy restaurants.
While that doesn't quite translate to street-food prices, an oyster (or dozen) with your after-work drink is by no means out of reach: Maldon Rock (U.K.) and Kumamoto (Japan) oysters are available for B139/piece, B699/half-dozen and B1,199/dozen, while Conegliano Valdobbiadene Prosecco D.O.C.G. is priced at B270/glass or B1,600/bottle.
You can also expect a little showmanship for your baht. Saovanee used to work at London's renowned Harrods Oyster Bar and is eager to show off a few shucking tricks that have helped her peel up to 1,000 oysters in a day.
