Sanafir Becomes Fish Shack *
* (From the press release.)
Emad Yacoub and Shannon Bosa-Yacoub owners of The GLOWBAL COLLECTION are going overboard for laid-back, quick fare with their newest spot to eat -- The Fish Shack -- opening later this fall. With casual, sun-bleached surroundings and a chalkboard menu of satisfying comfort food, The Fish Shack hooks guests with value and fast, fresh fun food from exceptional suppliers. Think daily fresh fish specials, fish & chips, chowder in bread bowls, fish boils, po'boy sandwiches and shellfish galore.
"We are excited by the possibilities of a new down-home direction," says Yacoub. "This is not fine dining; it is laid-back at every turn, from the jeans-clad service team to the menu to the decor. The Fish Shack is a place to catch a sports game while enjoying a beer and a relaxed meal."
As for design, the expansive bi-level, 100-seat space is undergoing a renovation led by Vancouver's BOX Interior Design. Given the concept, a nautical theme is a natural fit. Deep marine-blue walls complement the lifejacket red upholstered banquettes with a quick-trip-to-the docks feel. A blackboard painted wall beside the bar and upstairs above banquette seating, shouts out the daily food specials.
Diners will have to wait with baited breath for further details regarding the new space. Be on the lookout.
