A new oyster bar will open in Caryville on Nov. 3.
The restaurant is called Pate Farms Raw Bar & Grill and will be family-owned and operated on Highway 90 at the former Frenchâ€™s Restaurant & Oyster Bar locationâ€“4280 Old Spanish Road, to be specific.
Cassie Pate and her brother will be working at the restaurant, which is owned by their parents. Other family members will do the cooking.
â€œWeâ€™re really excited to be able to have a restaurant in Caryville where we donâ€™t have a lot of options,â€ Pate said. â€œItâ€™s always been my dream, especially my dadâ€™s.â€
The first 10 people at the grand openingâ€“which is on a Fridayâ€“will receive free appetizers. The eatery will also do a $50 gift card giveaway on social media.
â€œWe love oysters,â€ Pate said. â€œThatâ€™s one of my familyâ€™s favorite foods.â€
