Deux Ave and Citizen Oyster Bar...Any news?

ced9 Aug 11, 2010 12:48 PM

I know Citizen Oyster Bar has a blog but nothing has been updated recently and it says it was slated to open July 2010 so I was curious if anyone had info. I can't find anything about when Deux Ave is hoping to open aside from the sign in their window that says "Summer 2010".

      I think it is the people from Franklin Cafe...still no update though on opening date.

        Last I heard, Citizen, which I don't think is an oyster bar, is slated to open mid August. It's from the folks behind the Franklin(s).

        Deuxave, which is from the dbar peeps, is also coming soon. I think they've got most of their team in place - so maybe early September?

        Island Creek Oyster Bar, in the Great Bay space, is also supposed to be up and running sometime this fall...

          ah, ok, the franklin project.

          i am most excited about the island creek project. that sounds like a home-run.

            Deuxave has had a "soft" opening; the Island Creek place is supposedly on track for October.

          Deuxave is quietly open. I read the menu online - I don't think a single item had a description short enough to tweet; so many ingredients, so little time.

            Anyone check out Deuxave yet? Curious to see what it's like? Seems like it could be a cool after-work bar...

              Drove by it yesterday and it was definitely open. Quite a few outdoor tables, but no one was eating outside, so the must not yet be seating out there.

                could have just been too cold?

                  I've gone for drinks and oysters twice now. Both the drinks and oysters were good and the place was packed. It's definitely a cool looking room. Any reviews on the food?
