Every start-up dream begins with two words: what if?
Once upon a time, David Galin and his buddy George Craig fantasized about opening their own unique restaurant. But they were young and fate was very fickle. So each forged a highly successful non-culinary career — in academics (David) and finance (George). A generation later, the two pals found themselves fishing up in Maine; and on a sudden whim, once-upon-a-time magically became now.
What if they brought the seaside Maine Lobster Shack experience — and all its Wharf to Table freshness — to Fairfield County?
Voila: The Boothbay Lobster Company, a unique concept restaurant at Harbor Point in Stamford, which opens for real next week. Galin and Willie Craig (George’s son, a partner in Boothbay, and himself fresh out of college) offered CTbites an exclusive sneak peek at a dream come true.
