Hemenway's is offering a complimentary limited-edition Manhattan-for-two to the first 200 guests to request "a cocktail with real moxie." Join us for our 30th and enjoy a celebratory toast on us (while supplies last).

A word from Hemenway’s founder, Ned Grace:
“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 the 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. “Ned” Grace III, Founder
