After Smith's closed, the plan was to turn it into a Mermaid Inn. Now word comes down that is almost accurate: as it will become the Mermaid Oyster Bar when it returns, complete with 16 types of bivalves as well as ceviche and soups.
The West Village space last occupied by Bar Q is slated to become a seafood restaurant. The owner of Johnny Utah's is behind the project. No word on a name or a full concept just yet, as it's slated to open later in the fall.
Grand Central's Oyster Bar & Restaurant nearly lost their liquor license for a day last week after failing to fill out the proper paperwork to have it renewed.

Oyster Bar & Restaurant, Grand Central Terminal, Lower level, 42nd St., New York, NY 10017, 212-490-6650.
