A Look Around Grand Central Oyster Bar Brooklyn

Grand Central Oyster Bar opened its first Stateside franchise December 19th. Bruce Fox is in charge of franchising and Jonathan Young, who managed the 101-year-old flagship location in Grand Central, have teamed up to make it happen. The new location, in Park Slope, is in the 5,000-square-foot space that formerly housed Fornino. The Brooklyn location offers 16 to Grand Centrals 32 oyster varieties, but serves most of the same stews and pan roasts, salads, soups, sandwiches, platters and apps. A retail counter (where Fornino's takeout used to be) sells raw and prepared seafood and has ten first-come first-serve bar stools as an homage to the original location. Have a look around..
