After 50 years, Hs Lordships restaurant in Berkeley pulling up anchor
Bay Area fans of waterfront dining will have six more weeks to enjoy the seafood and bayside views at Hs Lordships at Berkeley’s marina.
The venerable restaurant will close July 1 after nearly 50 years in business.
Wednesday’s early announcement of the news was designed to give patrons plenty of time to get back in for one of their favorites — maybe the pan-seared petrale sole or the spicy pasta-and-shellfish Seafood Symphony platter, washed down with Hs Lordships rum punch.
“We want to end on a high note and honor Hs Lordships before it takes its final sail. Our guests will have some time to dine and reminisce with us before we close,” John Tallichet, president and CEO, said in a statement. “We want to invite all of our loyal guests and families to join us before we close to thank them for their patronage and to toast Hs Lordships one last time together!”
He went on to thank the restaurant’s staff, its customers and the city of Berkeley for their support over the years.
The family-owned Hs Lordships was founded in 1969 by David Tallichet, a World War II veteran and bomber pilot. His company, Specialty Restaurants Corp., now owns more than 20 restaurants across the United States.
