I walked past the new Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster Bar (part of the Sutton Place Hotel establishment (on Burrard Street near Robson Street) and I wondered how long this oyster-consuming place would survive. I was reminded, then, of what I suspected was a very long-lived oyster restaurant from Vancouver’s past: The Oyster Bay Cafe at 300 Carrall Street. I didn’t know how long the Oyster Bay had lasted, but I had a suspicion it was awhile. So I had a look in the BC Directories and I found listings for it from 1912 through 1948: 36 years.
