Kittery, the seafood shack restaurant on the corner of Smith and Union Streets that’s been under construction since the summer, finally opened its doors this past Friday (December 7th).

The restaurant promises “Coastal Cooking From Maine to the Gulf,” and it’s the second New England-inspired seafood establishment to open its doors in the area in as many years; Littleneck opened on Third Avenue and Carroll Streets in late 2011.

The same space was briefly the home of Diego, an ill-fated, decent but unspectacular Mexican restaurant that didn’t last very long. Before that, The Union Smith Cafe occupied the corner lot for a number of years.
