Mystic Seaport Museum to Delay Hotel Project
Museum Extends Event and Food Service Contract with Coastal Gourmet Group through 2021
Mystic, Conn. (April 8, 2020) – Mystic Seaport Museum announced today the Greenwich Hospitality Group (GHG) will delay for one year construction of the new Delamar Mystic Hotel.
Citing the economic and market uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GHG decided to push out the project 12 months. The 26-room boutique hotel and restaurant is to be built on Museum property that is the present site of Latitude 41 Restaurant & Tavern. The project received approval from the Town of Stonington on March 6. Construction was scheduled to begin in early 2021.
The Museum also announced today it has reached an agreement to immediately extend its event catering and food service contract with the Mystic-based Coastal Gourmet Group for one year. Coastal Gourmet operates Latitude 41 Restaurant and provides retail dining and catering in the River Room, Claggett Boat Shed, and the North Lawn for weddings, corporate gatherings, and other events.
“We are very pleased to be able to continue our relationship with Coastal Gourmet Group as they have been outstanding partners with the Museum for many years,” said Steve White, president of Mystic Seaport Museum.
The new contract will be in effect through December 31, 2021.
