A fabled seaside restaurant in Noank, Connecticut, will be reopened just in time for the summer season. The Seahorse Restaurant closed abruptly in January. But, according to a report from TheDay.com, it was recently purchased by Bill Spicer, whose family owns the nearby Spicer’s Marina.
Spicer plans to reopen the restaurant by late April. It will now be run by Thomas Tsagarakis, who owns Zack’s Bar and Grille in Stonington.
The Seahorse has been around since 1947, when it was started as a hotdog stand. Adding to its seaside ambience are fish scales that have been painted on the restaurant’s ceiling. Tsagarakis says the restaurant’s interior will be renovated, but many details of the old restaurant – including the fish scales – will be kept.
