The Fish Shack Opens October 24
From the fisherman’s ship to the Granville Street strip – here, the seafood is as fresh as the crowd. So roll up your sleeves, tie on a bib, grab a mallet and dig in – The Fish Shack has arrived.
The Fish Shack, The GLOWBAL COLLECTION’s new laid-back eatery, opens to the public today at 8 pm. Housed in the former Sanafir location, the soaring 100-seat space has been completely transformed to reflect the casual new offer.
BOX Interior Design led the revamp with a nod to the nautical. Marine-blue walls are offset by cool green tiling. Red upholstered banquettes conjure the look of vintage lifejackets. And the chalkboard walls are perfect for sharing fish facts alongside daily features.
“We’re happy to be part of the sea change that’s making Granville Street a draw for food and entertainment,” says Emad Yacoub, GLOWBAL COLLECTION Proprietor. “Fish Shack’s satisfying, unfussy and fun. We hope people love it.”
At the helm of kitchen operations is Executive Chef Alfred Contiga, who comes most recently from SOCIETY Dining Lounge. Staying true to the restaurant’s name, the menu offers up seafood favourites, such as: Fish & Chips – Halibut, Lingcod, Salmon, Haddock, Snapper, Oyster or Prawns, paired up with crunchy coleslaw in a variety of fresh flavours; Mussels or Clam ‘Steamers’ simmered in a trio of sauces; Burgers – Kentucky Fried Oyster or Blackened Snapper; Cajun Fish Tacos; Prawn Louie Salad; Fried Whole Trout; and Spag & Prawn Meatballs.
Guests may need a bigger boat after sinking their teeth into the following dishy highlights:
+ Daily Buck-a-Shuck Oysters: From opening until 5 pm.
+ Lobster and Crab Fest Sundays: Enjoy a fresh 1lb lobster or whole crab on special for $19.95 every Sunday.
+ The Fisherman’s Catch: A fresh medley of seafood including Dungeness crab, snow crab, mussels, prawns, calamari and crayfish, released from the net right before guests’ eyes. Small Catch, $20 per person. Big Catch, $30 per person. Minimum of two people.
+ Weekend Brunch: 10:30 am – 3 pm Saturday and Sunday. Lobster & Eggs, Prawn Frittata, Dungeness Crab Benny and Carrot Cake French Toast are amidst the many tempting dishes.
Carnivores need not jump ship. Meaty options like the Prime Rib Burger, Half Roasted Chicken and Spag & Meatballs will surely float their boat.
