Revival Kitchen & Bar in NH Magazine

WMUR Features Lef Farm and Farm-to-Table Customer Revival Kitchen
Chef Corey Fletcher has opened Revival Kitchen & Bar with staff he first met during his days at 55 Degrees in Concord about 12 years ago. In between, he was executive chef at the Colby Hill Inn and Granite Restaurant & Bar at the Centennial Hotel. At Revival, in the former Sunny’s space on Depot Street in Concord, Fletcher is serving up some of his favorite classic dishes that he developed along the way, but now he favors local suppliers. Find local rabbit, cheeses, chicken, pork, beef and lamb, all with carefully balanced flavors. All breads and biscuits are house-made, along with the creative dessert list. The space features a small bar with sophisticated décor, interesting wine list and well-spaced dining in the adjoining high-ceilinged room.
New Restaurant Brings ‘Revival’ to Downtown
At Lef in Loudon, things are green all year long. Sean McDonald heads inside the high-tech garden that is making it possible to get locally grown lettuce year round.
Fletcher Named Best Chef by Readers of the Hippo
Sitting at a bronze tabletop last week in the restaurant he plans to open Tuesday – while crews hammered away at its finishing touches – chef Corey Fletcher discussed a pair of motivations that led him to take the “calculated risk” of becoming Concord’s newest restaurateur with Revival Kitchen and Bar.
First, there’s the personal aspect: After his experiences as the head chef at the Granite Restaurant and Bar, the Colby Hill Inn and 55 Degrees, he’s built enough of a reputation locally that he feels confident realizing a longtime goal of opening his own restaurant downtown, he said.
Corey Fletcher, Executive Chef at The Centennial Hotel and Granite Restaurant & Bar was named Best Chef – Best of Concord by The Hippo in their 12th Annual Readers Poll Best of 2013 which was just released. The Hippo provides Southern New Hampshire's active adults the only dedicated food, music, movie and arts coverage and its state's largest listings section of things to do.
