Good things supposedly happen in threes, so we can only hope that a third oyster bar will open in Wynwood/midtown. Midtown Oyster Bar will start operation sometime in October, making it the area's second oyster bar this year, after Mignonette.

Midtown Oyster Bar is the brainchild of the Graspa Group. You might be familiar with its other restaurant concepts, which include Salumeria 104, Spris, Tiramesu (making a comeback later this year), and Segafredo. What does that mean? Expect New England favorites with a touch of Italian.

Located in the Shops at Midtown, adjacent to Bocce Bar and Sugarcane, Midtown Oyster Bar has aquamarine wallpaper on its windows, with teasing portholes allowing a glimpse inside. From what we could make out, there are no tables inside yet, only crates hanging from the ceilings -- perhaps a funky way of lighting the place.

The menu, developed by chef and co-owner Angelo Masarin of Salumeria 104, will change seasonally according to availability of the freshest seafood possible. Before making Miami his hometown, Masarin spent eight years on the north Atlantic coast, where he fell in love with New England cuisine. When the concept for Midtown Oyster Bar (MOB) was born, he and co-owner Carlo Donadoni began frequenting the region to explore the best oyster bars and visiting local farms, from which he will source products.

Expect a diverse selection of oysters. In addition to bivalves, the raw bar will also abound with other gems from the sea, such as lobster, clams, shrimp, and stone crabs. Some specialties will include scampi crudi and lobster rolls.

We'll have to wait and see whether happy oyster will be a thing at midtown's newest oyster bar.
