FAQ Who should I contact for Media Inquiries ?

For media inquiries, please contact thebreslin@wagstaffworldwide.com

Do you take reservations?

Yes! We offer limited reservations for both lunch and dinner. For parties of up to 6 people you can make a reservation with us via the internet at thejohndory.com or through Open Table. For parties of 7 or more you may call 212-792-9000 and speak to our reservationist. You will receive a confirmation call the day of your reservation. We kindly ask for a prompt response. Unfortunately, we are unable to seat parties unless they are complete. As a courtesy, we will hold your table 15 minutes past the time of your reservation. After 15 minutes have passed, we will release the table to guests on the wait list.

Do you sell April Bloomfield’s cookbook?

Yes, we do! Please ask your server or a manager for a copy.

Do you have a happy hour?

Yes! 7 days per week we offer happy hour from 5-7pm. From the raw bar, we offer $2 chef's choice oysters and clams. From the bar you may choose from half off on our John Dory Oyster Stout, our tap sparkling riesling and sherry, and $5 oyster shooters. Additionally, on Saturday and Sunday this offering is available from 12-3pm.

Can you order off of the Breslin menu in the John Dory and vice versa?

Unfortunately, that is not an option. But there’s something to whet everyone’s appetites on both menus

Does the John Dory have a corkage fee?

Although we hope you enjoy our thoughtfully selected wine list, we do welcome bottles that we do not have in our cellar. Corkage is $40 per bottle, $80 for magnums. We allow groups to bring in a maximum of 2 regular bottles (750mL) or 1 magnum. 

What is sustainable seafood? Are you sustainable at the John Dory?

Sustainable seafood is seafood that is fished or farmed in ways that do not negatively impact the environment. The John Dory exclusively serves seafood that is sustainably and ethically sourced. We maintain close relationships with all of our purveyors to ensure just that.

Is there an oyster season?

The old adage that you should only east oysters during months that end in “R” is woefully outdated. Due to modern aquaculture and our ability to safely ship oysters all around the world. Oysters are always an excellent idea.
