Sharing a love of oysters, the ocean, and all things hospitality led to the creation of Ostrica in June of 2022.
Living in Kips Bay themselves, Kristen and Mike are excited to contribute to the neighborhood and can’t wait to welcome you.
Located on Second Avenue in the heart of Kips Bay, Ostrica's menu boasts a variety of inventive dishes, land and seafaring alike. A diverse menu of oysters served on the half-shell are rotated daily, ensuring you always have something new to try.
Our raw bar features truly colossal shrimp, blue crab salad, crudos and tartar of local fish including fluke, hamachi, and tuna, as well as the freshest of fresh lobster. For larger plates, Ostrica's Lobster Roll, Shrimp Po' Boy, and Torched Tuna Salad never disappoint.
Beyond seafood, our menu is upscale casual, featuring cheese and charcuterie, local greenmarket vegetable sides, and tasty, tasty toasts for all palates.
In the neighborhood of Murray Hill, excellent wine at an affordable price can be difficult to come by. At Ostrica, we pride ourselves on having something for everyone - every taste bud at every budget.
We've curated a beverage program that consists of spectacular wine, perfect lobster-roll-pairing beers, and aperitivo-based cocktails that will take you out of Manhattan and off to the seaside.
