BRIEF HISTORY

An adventure-loving fellow with a passion for fishing and a knack for hospitality inspired his grandson to found Hemenway’s. Over 20 years later, his spirit and enthusiasm still motivate our dedicated team.

“Charles Martin Hemenway (1886-1964) was an avid sportsman and fisherman. He was a pioneer in entrepreneurial spirit yet possessed only a seventh grade education. Destined for success, he became President of the Moxie Beverage Company, the New Haven Railroad, and the Varsity-Royale Record Company. He introduced soft-serve ice cream to New York World's Fair in 1939 and owned the Flying Lobster Restaurant on 52nd Street in New York, where he flew in fresh lobsters daily from Nova Scotia. His passion for fishing took him throughout North America, but his favorite trip was to the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada, during salmon season. This restaurant is dedicated to my late grandfather, Charles M. Hemenway, who will always remain an inspiration.” -Edward P. Grace III, Founder
