Fat Canary At Merchants Square, Williamsburg, Virginia


The "Fat Canary" restaurant at Merchants Square is a four star restaurant on Duke of Gloucester Street across the street from the Trellis Restaurant. According to their website, the name is taken from the works of a colonial playwright wishing for a "bowl of fat canary" which is a reference to wine or "canary" as it was known when included in the supplies picked up in the Canary Islands.

While I was visiting a friend who purchased new Williamsburg real estate and fell in love with the historic area. We visited the Williamsburg Winery and wished we visited this restaurant. This is on my to-do-list for my next visit

I love it exterior too. I’m going to be trying this restaurant next time when I visit there. Food and service might be good enough as you are suggesting.
