Oh, shuck. A new oysters and wine bar called Little Shucker is taking over the long-dormant Pacific Heights location of The Grove.

The new eatery recently posted a liquor license application notice on the window of the vacant storefront at 2016 Fillmore St. The opening date has yet to be announced, but what we do know is that Little Shucker comes to us from the folks behind The Snug, a cocktail bar located nearby at Fillmore and Clay streets. It joins a thriving culinary corridor that includes SPQR, Pizzeria Delfina and Noosh.

The Chronicle first spotted the new oyster bar last August, noting that it will be helmed by chef Adrian Garcia, who formerly worked at Michelin-starred kitchens Benu and Quince.

The Grove, a longtime local chain for comfort food, closed its Pacific Heights cafe in 2020 after Bank of America allegedly failed to submit the restaurant's stimulus loan.

The Snug were contacted for comment about the opening of Little Shucker.
