Through almost 3-years of intensive construction, street closures, and landscape altering conditions (i.e. the closing of Tobacco Road), chef David Bracha and his team at the River Oyster Bar continue to serve 7-days a week in spite of a closure scare:   The River Oyster Bar which opened 10 years ago has inked a deal for three additional years at its current location.

“We made it this far!” said Bracha. “With the first phase of Brickell City Center set to open by the end of the year, we’re excited to be a part of the changing neighborhood and that The River will remain a true neighborhood restaurant amidst the hundreds of national brands opening in the adjacent center.”

Adding additional excitement is the addition of The Oak’s Chef de Cuisine, Curtis Rhodes, as  a full-time fixture in the River Oyster Bar’s kitchen preparing River and Oak’s (Bracha’s sister restaurant, Oak Tavern, had closed earlier this year when the building was sold) favorites, which include Tuna Poke with avocado & sweet soy; Scallop Tostadas; Crispy Suckling Pig; and Mushroom Crusted Ribeye, as well as the Mai Tai and other cocktails which will be offered as The River kicks off the Independence Day holiday weekend at a specially priced POP-OAK dinner with dishes ranging from $5 and $10 to $15 and  $20 each.

The River Oyster Bar remains open at 650 Miami Avenue for regular dinner service, happy hour and lunch, which includes complimentary parking in The River’s adjacent parking lot.
