On November 1st, Matt Dean Pettit got the keys to his first restaurant at 110 Ossington. Exactly one month later, he opened the doors to Rock Lobster Food Co. What happened between those days was a cosmetic overhaul that transformed the old Watusi space into a modern Canadiana seafood spot.
Luckily, Pettit knows a lot of crafty people who helped him remodel the place in such a short time. His friend, cook and carpenter Chris Vasco made the wooden serving boards. Bartender Josh Lindley created all new cocktails, including a Lobster Caesar. Pettit’s Dad painted the restaurant’s focal point mural, seen as soon as you walk in the doors. So in only 30 days a new resto was born on the Ossington strip.
