Jamestown Fish will be sold by the receiver on Monday, October 19 at 11 am at the Kent County Superior Court, according to Kirby Properties.

The award-winning restaurant permanently closed and was put on the market for $1.6 million in June 2019. It currently has a sale price of $1,250,000.

At that time Jamestown Press reported that the restaurant was put on the market by owner John Recca. The restaurant had planned on opening during the spring of 2019 but decided against it after co-owner Matthew MacCartney and Recca had parted ways.
