New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart was on hand for the celebration. The owner of Hook and Ladder is a New Britain resident. He said they already have a location in North Haven but are happy to open a location closer to home.

“We like downtown,” Matthew Butler, owner, explained. “Downtown has changed a lot just in the last five years. A historic building, COPs right across the street…the town wants to work with you.”

Hook and Ladder is located on Main Street and will be open for lunch and dinner.
