The team behind Rodney’s by Bay is opening a midtown oyster house


Published:

The space at 1 Balmoral Avenue has housed a number of different restaurants over the past few years: most notably Terroni, then the short-lived Divino, which closed its doors earlier this month. Now the team behind Rodney’s By Bay is setting up shop there with an upcoming seafood spot to be known as John & Sons Oyster House.

The concept of the new restaurant, of course, will be oysters and seafood. Co-owner John Belknap says that the venue will be similar to Rodney’s By Bay (Pencil Design, for example, will once again take care of décor) with minor changes expected in order to adapt to the neighbourhood.

Belknap was careful to maintain that neither Rodney’s By Bay nor John & Sons are affiliated with the famous Rodney’s Oyster House (Belknap uses the Rodney’s name through a licensing agreement, but the connection ends there).

The new restaurant is expected to open by September.

John & Sons Oyster House, 1 Balmoral Ave.
