The Making of 55 Degrees Restaurant
Written by Frisky M. Stal
You may have seen an architectural likeness of 55 Degrees in Boston, San Francisco, or Washington, D.C. — a contemporary restaurant housed in an old building that has been restored to its original condition and reborn. The good news is you won’t have to travel far. Fifty-five Degrees is in our backyard, in a three-story building in the historic Morrill Brothers Block at 55 Main Street in downtown Concord. Fast becoming a destination, the restaurant is gaining a culinary reputation under the talented direction of 25-year old chef, Cory Fletcher, and the astute management of its owner, Shannon Drake.Fifty-five Degrees offers comfortable, relaxed dining, a fun, off-the-beaten track wine list and exquisite tapas, the small plates of Spain that traveled across the Atlantic to California, then worked their way across America to the east coast. In a land of obesity, 55 Degrees offers an opportunity to sample smaller portions, without waddling home with a fat doggie bag.
55 Degrees is located at 55 Main Street in Concord, New Hampshire. Reservations at 603-224-7192.
