Styley Places: Sel Rrose

While shooting streetstyle a few weeks ago, I walked by a cool looking place called Sel Rrose. Since Wednesday was my birthday, I decided to go there to celebrate. 

For one thing, they serve nothing but oysters and shrimp cocktail. For another, they serve only oysters and shrimp cocktail.

The name Sel Rrose is a reference to Rose Selavy, Marcel Duchamp's feminine alter ego. The interior design is meant to evoke early 20th century Paris. Since I like art and I like Paris, it was pretty much a no brainer. And, of course, I like shrimp cocktail. Because I am essentially a child. Did I mention that I turned five this year?

Sel Rrose, 1 Delancey Street on the southeast corner of Bowery. Hours: Tuesday through Saturday, 5pm-4am.
