Brookline has had a long standing and successful relationship with Hyatt Regency Calgary, and 2011 was a particularly exciting year for the award-winning hotel, Stillwater Spa, Thomsons Restaurant, Sandstone Lounge and Catch & the Oyster Bar.

Re-opening of Catch & The Oyster Bar

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Brookline Public Relations helped Catch & The Oyster Bar re-open their doors to reveal a fresh new look and menu on Friday, September 23rd, 2011. The pearl of Stephen Avenue closed for a two month transformation and has returned to Calgary’s diverse culinary scene with a fresh “Catch”.

The newly renovated space is separated into two exciting venues that celebrate the restaurant’s historic location and award-winning menu offerings. The Oyster Bar (main level) has been refreshed to emphasize the energy and character of the popular raw bar. The new bar brings the oyster experience and show kitchen front and centre for guests, offering a more social, culinary interaction. Catch (upstairs) has moved away from its original formal dining room feel and has been converted into an urban loft-like seafood bistro. Guests can still expect the same excellent service, quality ingredients and fine cuisine it is known for, but with a new, exciting ambiance.

The Brookline team celebrated the re-opening with Calgary’s culinary media at a sneak-a-peek preview night before the grand re-opening. We sampled Executive Chef Kyle Groves’ delicious creations such as B.C. Kusshi oysters smoked tableside, scallop ceviche with lime caviar and lemon confit, and B.C. spot prawns poached in pinot gris. Yum yum.

Catch & The Oyster bar has also livened up their features, now offering a unique tableside martini service, an interactive LiveMenu, and bring your own wine (BYOW) Tuesdays.

The Brookline team will surely be back soon for a team lunch/dinner in The Oyster Bar because we’re shuckers for a good time!
