Shucked oysters delivery coming soon to Toronto

After 13 years, the tides are turning at Starfish, with the Adelaide oyster bar set for a major revamp this fall. In addition to the changes you might expect, like a new name (the Pearl Diver) and an overhauled atmosphere (think laid-back "oysterman's pub"), the new restaurant is working on features that should be some pretty tasty bait for the city's food fans.

Most notably, the restaurant will be partnering with bike delivery service Hurrier to offer freshly shucked oyster delivery, making them the first restaurant in the city to bring fresh bivalves right to your door.

If you opt to dine in-house, you'll be able to try their new menu of Asian-inspired seafood dishes, including lobster bao and seafood ramen, as well as more traditional surf-and-turf dishes and a new craft beer menu. Or visit the back room, where you can check out a selection of food-related books curated by Alison Fryer (of Yorkville's now-departed Cookbook Store).

For now, you can say goodbye to the Starfish as you once knew it; the restaurant is set to shut down August 30 and resurface in its new form in October.
