Murphy Hospitality Group brings us Barrington Steakhouse & Oyster Bar

Let's get shucked up


The PEI restauranteurs that brought us Gahan House (1869 Lower Water Street) last fall are back at it again, opening Barrington Street Steakhouse and Oyster Bar in the heart of downtown later this spring.

Kevin Murphy's Murphy Hospitality Group will open the 60-seat street level oyster bar, second floor 100-seat dining room and patio at 1662 Barrington Street, putting culinary focus on aged, grass-fed Maritime beef from the Atlantic Beef Plant and local oysters.

"It's going to be spectacular," says Murphy, adding that the Barrington Street Steakhouse and Oyster Bar will have a warm, casual vibe that will complement its neighbours Stillwell and Urban Outfitters. "Barrington Street has such a great history, and seems to be on the verge of revitalization with businesses, the convention centre and downtown in general."

This shucking exciting restaurant announcement comes on the heels of expansion news from fellow steak enthusiasts at CUT Steakhouse (5120 Salter Street), which will add Shuck Seafood and Raw Bar to the mix—with esteemed chef Luis Clavel at the helm—this spring after some renovations.
