Uptown Mugs #32 – Chris Grannan

Certainly one the most familiar faces in Uptown Saint John is that of Chris Grannan. The leader of Grannan Hospitality Group (owners of iconic uptown restaurants Grannan's Seafood and Church Street Steakhouse), Chris can often be spotted on the streets bouncing between his establishments on any given night. Having been a member of the Saint John hospitality scene for decades, few people understand the nitty gritty of the booming uptown restaurant industry better than him. Always looking to stay fresh after more than 30 years in business, Grannan's Seafood has recently embarked on extensive renovations, a new executive chef and reinvented menu (check it out HERE).
