Gage & Tollner: Oyster & Chop House

A historic Brooklyn restaurant reborn

Highlights

1
Founding team has 3 successful NYC restaurants between them.
2
Located in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, currently the center of intense private and commercial residential development. Served by 19 public transit lines, it's been a bustling neighborhood since before Brooklyn was a borough. 
3
The dining room is a unique, Gilded-Age jewel, sure to be a tourist destination in its own right. The third interior to be "landmarked" in NYC. To re-create it today would cost millions. "One of Brooklyn's most venerable and beautiful restaurants." —Ruth Reichl, NY Times
4
Five generations of goodwill: Brooklynites love this restaurant and want it to come back
5
Limited ramp-up time: The building has 19th century charm but largely 21st Century infrastructure, put in by pervious tenants
6
Limited neighborhood competition in one of the fastest growing neighborhoods in the city
