SHUCKS Oyster Wine Bar Opens in Town Brookhaven

The Here To Serve Restaurant (H2SR) empire is home to some of the best and most celebrated restaurants in all of Atlanta and with the city's restaurant scene consistently expanding, any new eatery under their culinary umbrella is definitely in good hands. This means that new restaurant SHUCKS Oyster & Wine Bar already has a great home to prep them for success. Find out all the delicious details about this new dining den opening in Town Brookhaven. When Tom Catherall decided to take his love of the sea and develop a restaurant around the idea, he didn't look too far for staff.

For the first time in Here To Serve Restaurant's 23 year history, his newest concept, SHUCKS, will be a family affair with Catherall's children, Tara, Ryan, Kathleen and Nick, in the kitchen and on the service floor and his brother Ronnie taking the helm as General Manager. SHUCKS Oyster & Wine Bar openS on October 10 th , 2013, one month after the restaurant group's SMASH premiered. SHUCKS will be the third H2SR dining venue and nightspot in North Atlanta's Town Brookhaven community. Located at 705 Town Boulevard, SHUCKS will feature carefully selected oysters from around the world, gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade soups and seasonal salads along with craft beers as well as a carefully curated wine and champagne list. "I was inspired by my travels and my children" said Catherall on his oyster bar concept.

"SHUCKS Oyster & Wine Bar is a labor of love, but also of blood, brine and beer." According to Catherall, the pedigreed oysters will come from the Northeast Coast of Maine to the West Coast and from the Gulf of Apalachicola to Texas. The wines will compliment the oysters and will change out monthly as the oysters change. Then there's the sandwiches, which he describes as "not your mother's grilled cheese," with names like "Shucks Signature 5 Cheese," "Jalapeno Cheese Popper" and the "Deconstructed French Onion Soup Sandwich," which features caramelized onions and gruyere cheese on French bread with an au jus dipping sauce. Opening in the former Full Cup location, SHUCKS is just steps away from H2SR's popular sister restaurant, Noche Tequila and Tapas Bar and across the way from SMASH. SHUCKS Oyster & Wine Bar, which seats 42 inside and 30 on the patio, will open for dinner nightly from 5pm-10pm Monday-Thursday; from noon to 11pm on Friday and Saturday and from 1-10pm on Sunday.
