We love our “R” months, hailed as prime time for oysters (although, these days, you can indeed get great oysters all year round). Check out these five top shuckers.
Oyster Express This smart, compact newbie on an unlikely corner in Chinatown offers a dozen different kinds daily, along with a classic prawn cocktail (pictured).
2  Rodney’s Oyster House Discover down-home hospitality, plus steamers and chowders, in a funky Yaletown warehouse setting.
3  Joe Fortes Downtown’s original San Francisco–style seafooder is still shuckin’ for a lively after-work crowd around its horseshoe bar.
4  Merchant’s Oyster Bar New on the Drive. Find fresh-shucked and baked but also a full menu, with cod en papillote, boudin (sausage) au mer and more.
5  Oyster Seafood & Raw Bar This diminutive but cute spot is tucked away on the ground floor of an art deco building. Buck a shuck daily from 3 to 7 p.m.—Tim Pawsey
