Nearly 35 years after opening its doors, Tim-Bir Alley is now under new ownership. Tim & Biruta Carr have decided to sell their restaurant which has been located on Main Street in Littleton for the last 10 years. The well-known fine dining establishment has been a staple of the Littleton restaurant scene and has recently reopened under the guidance of local and award winning Chef, Valney Fortin. Fortin has over 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry in Northern NH. Since 2006 he has been the Executive Chef at the Sugar Hill Inn and has worked at other establishments including Mount Washington Hotel and Resort, Bretton Arms Country Inn and Alden Country Inn.
Valney Fortin and his wife Nancy reopened Tim-Bir Alley in mid-April. They plan to keep alive the same fine dining experience that has made Tim-Bir Alley such a success in the past while adding their own personal touches along the way. The restaurant is expected to create a few jobs in the area and will continue to be a strong part of the community and Main Street Littleton.
Part of the financing to purchase Tim-Bir Alley came from Grafton Regional Developments (GRDC) Micro Loan Program.
