The New Oyster Bar Will Be a 'Trendy' Neighborhood Place

New, 21 comments

Later this year, a spinoff of Grand Central Oyster Bar will open in the massive Fifth Avenue space that formerly housed Fornino Park Slope. In a press release sent out today, the owners say that they want to open "a trendy, neighborhood restaurant that pays homage to the original Oyster Bar with an added Brooklyn flair." They plan to serve lunch and dinner every day plus brunch on the weekends. The restaurant will have a main dining room, a bar, and a lounge, with a total capacity of 150 people.

The menu will include the same raw bar items, stews, and chowders served at the original, plus daily seafood pasta specials. And, as a part of the "Brooklyn flair," the menu will incorporate "local produce from area farmers' markets." One of the owners, Jonathan Young, lives in Brooklyn and previously worked as the GM of the mothership. The other owner is Bruce Fox, the Vice President of Franchising for the restaurant group.

Grand Central Oyster Bar Brooklyn, as it's being called, is slated to open by the end of the year.
