THE FIVE FISHERMEN
In Good Spirits
Without a serious renovation in over 30 years, it was time to put this premier seafood resto back on the culinary radar for locals and up its destination status for out-of-towners.
The Grafton-Connor Group entrusted Breakhouse to maintain a connection to the rich history of this 200 + year old structure while developing a contemporary dining experience.
There was no problem finding inspiration in a location that was once the site of the first national public school in the country as well as an art college founded by Anna Leonowens (the famed real-life character from The King & I) later to be led by Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven. Did we mention it was also a funeral home that held recovered victims from the sinking of the Titanic in 1912? Oh, and the place is said to be haunted.
