An interesting nugget in the Ottawa Citizen this week, copied below:

The Valente brothers, who in 15 years have built the Fratelli brand into a successful local dining enterprise, have plans to expand into Westboro with a new fish restaurant as early as mid-May. Called Westboro Fish, the venture represents a complete departure from the traditional, comfort Italian fare Robert and Richard Valente have become known for since opening their first Fratelli restaurant at 749 Bank St. in 1996. The fish restaurant will be in the current leased Fratelli space at 309 Richmond Rd. in Westboro, while that Fratelli namesake will be relocated to nearby property the brothers purchased two years ago at 275 Richmond Rd., formerly occupied by The Village Quire stationery store. Fratelli currently has four locations in the Glebe, Westboro, Kanata and Barrhaven.

I hadn’t even thought that we’re missing a fish place. You can buy it wholesale in Hintonburg. And you can order salmon and fish and chips at most places, but I guess a fish place would work. Will keep you posted on progress.
