Young & Hungry took a sneak peek inside chef Jeff Black‘s forthcoming Pearl Dive Oyster Palace on Thursday afternoon. Among the more eye-catching elements of the decor: big digital screens mounted to the walls, similar to those you see at the DMV or Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. That’s right—snagging a seat at the new seafood spot on 14th Street will work pretty much the same way as getting your various city permits renewed. Take a number, then wait for it to appear on the big board. At least you won’t have to continually nag the hostess for an update. Your seating status will be right there in blazing neon.

More details on the menu and decor to come.
