Calgarians will have to find a new place for fresh oysters.
Catch & The Oyster Bar, a longtime seafood staple in Calgary’s downtown, announced that it will be closing its doors for good on Friday, November 17.
According to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the closure is due to economic hardships that left it impossible for the seafood spot to stay open.
“While we’re extremely proud of what this establishment has meant to Calgarians and the careers of many, it’s definitely bittersweet that the economic downturn made it unsustainable to continue,” the post read.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed being part of Calgary’s culinary evolution, and employing some of the City’s top chefs and hospitality professionals over the years. We hope you’ll come and help us send off a great restaurant in style this week. Thanks for everything Calgary!”
Catch & The Oyster Bar will be open today until 10 pm for anyone hoping to get one last taste before those doors are closed for good.
