"We'll be back" - Toronto landmark restaurant vows to open again just weeks after fire damages original location

    TORONTO, Aug. 3 /CNW/ - An early morning fire today at The Fish House
restaurant - a Toronto landmark for over a quarter-century - caused no
injuries and won't stop the restaurant from opening again soon at a new
location that is already under construction.
    "It looks like we will not be able to reopen at our existing location
(2035 Sheppard Avenue East, North York), so we are going to accelerate
construction of our new location, says Fish House owner Ken Baxter.
    Original plans called for the new Fish House restaurant, located in
Markham at 7501 Woodbine Avenue, to open in late September. The new plan is to
open this location as soon as the mandatory construction is complete, likely
in mid September.
    "We will have everything we need to serve our patrons, but some of the
finishing touches may not be complete," explains Mr. Baxter. "Fortunately, we
have some of the most loyal customers in the restaurant business and I know
they won't mind putting up with the odd inconvenience."
    Mr. Baxter said the new location will provide the same unmatched
selection of fresh fish and seafood that has made The Fish House a popular
destination for fish lovers throughout the GTA. "We became a favorite of fish
lovers by offering fresh fish and seafood flown in daily from around the world
and expertly prepared by the city's finest seafood chefs. That's never going
to change."
