Through recent Facebook posts, we see they’re closed for the holidays, hosting a few private parties and such. Promising to keep Astoria posted about when they’ll re-open again, we’ve been wondering the same thing and through the grapevine heard they may close their doors after the new year. Still just a rumor, we wanted to put it out there and see if you’ve heard differently and to share any news we can then share back through the blog. We’ve enjoyed dining here over the last year and would hate to see this place go, but are always interested about the future. Drop us a note if you know more, Astoria!

Why do owners have to lie like that is beyond me. Reply Phil December 20th, 2014 For the first time in months there were lights on in the oyster cafe last night. Still closed though… Reply cd December 19th, 2014 Oyster Cafe has been closed for a good 2 months. Reply Evangeline December 19th, 2014 I live near Marketa and walk by them daily. They haven’t hosted a single holiday party yet. In fact, in the past day or so they’ve put up black stickers on most of their windows so you can’t see in. But from the bit I can see, it looks like they’ve left everything as is–bottles at the bar, place mats and candles on the table, etc… Reply John December 18th, 2014 Good! They were too expensive for the mediocre food and service. Hope we get a Trader Joes, but no more froyo’s and burgers please!! Reply dunnypop December 17th, 2014 damn I haven’t tried this place yet. Beautiful space. Any word on that Oyster Cafe of New York? Still closed. Reply Haidee December 18th, 2014 ive wondered about Oyster Cafe too. They have not been open for a while:-( Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
