Michael and Peter Labrie of Rye, proprietors of the popular River House Restaurant known for its casual dining overlooking Portsmouth Harbor, have announced that they will be opening their second year-round restaurant, Atlantic Grill, November 2014 at Foyes Corner in nearby Rye, NH.
The family business will build on their River House menu of classic seafood favorites complemented by contemporary dishes by offering a mix of comfort food, healthy options, seafood, and modest prices.
The architecture of the new restaurant, has been referred to as "coastal classic" and will accommodate dining at tables, in the lounge, outside and takeout.
And, as with all their endeavors, the Labrie's new restaurant will continue the family's longtime love and support for the arts. Michael and Peter grew up in a family involved in the community; their grandmother Rose Labrie was a Naïve Art painter who was one of the founders of Prescott Park Arts Festival. In 2009, even before they opened their first restaurant, they sought out PPAF and made a commitment to sponsor their Wednesday night Concert Series. The response was tremendous and next they approached The Music Hall, where they have been season sponsors for many years.
Again, even before their Rye restaurant opens later this year, they have already made a commitment to support Seacoast Science Center's popular outdoor concert series, Music by the Sea.
