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.
We’ll have more on this as it develops.
