We are looking at opportunities for “Brick & Mortar” in several markets. We love Huntington, LI, The Rockaways, Ithaca and Westchester. Two opportunities to build and operate an Oyster Resort are apparent. An Oyster Resort is a place where a boutique hotel and elite restaurant supports a working oyster hatchery, nursery and farm (as well as some terrestrial farming) in a bay or sea side location.
We are working on something in Philly. No saying when. But we love this town for our style of service. Target areas: Fish Town or Main Line
We have identified an ideal location for an Oyster Resort near Charleston. It is a long way out perhaps but we have a good feeling about this one. Also seeking more traditional brick & mortar in Charleston proper or very nearby.
We are in talks with a restaurant group to develop Empire Oyster Bars here. We love Wilmington, in particular.
The same restaurant group mentioned above is also keen to develop stores in VA. We are keen on non-coastal regions in this state.
Early in 2020 we hope to be on a rooftop at a beautiful new hotel in St Pete with commanding views of the Gulf & Bay. Time will tell. There could also be opportunities in Tampa, Orlando, Miami and many other cities.
Something BIG could be coming to Santa Monica relatively soon.
