After months of renovations, Greenwich Bay Oyster Bar has opened up in its new space at 240 Main Street, just a couple doors down from its former location, with a little more space in the dining room, a more efficient kitchen and the same seaside details that lent the old space its charm.
Owner David Spaziano said he got extra encouragement to move when his old landlord (just two doors down) planned to raise the rent.
As before, there’s a prominent oyster bar. Seafood remains the focus.
“I was born and raised in Rhode Island. I’m always on the bay and in the water. Rhode
Island has some of the best waters to fish. There’s also a duty to keep the local economy going,” explained Spaziano.
He said in light of those things, a seafood restaurant “came naturally.”
While Spaziano is a chef, the restaurant’s head chef is Rob Caramonte. The restaurant features $1 oysters from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, among other specials.
