Fratello's Italian Grille:
In 1992, the owners of The Homestead restaurants purchased the vacant Indian Head bank building in Laconia, NH. The historic brick bank building did not fit the theme for another Homestead location, so the McDonough family went to work on developing a new theme. The end result was Fratello’s Italian Grille, a casual Italian-American restaurant featuring wood-fired brick oven pizza, steaks, seafood, and Italian favorites. The name Fratello’s comes from the Italian word "fratello" which means brother. In the spring of 2015, the original Fratello’s in Laconia underwent a significant renovation where the “greenhouse” dining room was replaced by a new structure, including the now focal point tower section. An outside deck was constructed off the second floor, which added seating for 30 guests in the summer months. After great success in the Laconia market, the McDonough brothers purchased the Myrna shoe building on Commercial Street in Manchester in 1997. After much renovation, the 86,000 square foot building was divided into business condominiums and a 16,000 square foot Fratello’s with an attached event facility. To this day Fratello’s of Manchester continues to be one of Manchester’s favorite dining spots. Most recently, in July of 2015, Fratello’s of Nashua was opened on Main Street in downtown. Located in the Masonic Temple Building, the space was previously occupied by Villa Banca restaurant for many years. The McDonough brothers completed a full renovation of the space, including the transformation of what was the bar area to the wood-fired pizza kitchen. A new, larger bar was constructed in the front right of the restaurant. In the summer season, dining el fresco is offered on the newly reconstructed sidewalk.
The Homestead Restaurant & Tavern:
The Homestead Restaurant in Bristol, NH represents the original homestead of Benjamin Emmons. The large two-story frame house built by Emmons, circa 1788, is said to be the oldest house standing in the town of Bristol. Benjamin Emmons was a prominent man in his day. He was a revolutionary soldier from New Chester (now known as Bristol) and after the war was active in the militia. Here he kept a tavern, and for the price of $0.12 you could have a bowl of porridge and chance to sleep on the floor. His descendants lived here for generations. Today the McDonough family opens its doors to offer the finest of today’s food and beverage and a glimpse at the past. Three dining rooms make up the first floor of the original structure. The wide pine board floors and original fireplaces greet you as you take a step back in time. Since the Homestead first opened in 1979, the need for more seating was satisfied with the addition of two more dining rooms. The main dining room offers floor-to-ceiling views of the backyard, while the patio room offers lots of light with its many southern windows. Whichever room you choose, you are sure to encounter a wonderful dining experience.
