CCG won’t turn Fins into teaching restaurant


finsA deal under which culinary students from College of Coastal Georgia would have operated the former Fins by the Sea restaurant on Jekyll Island won’t happen after all.

On Tuesday, Coastal Georgia President Gregory Aloia informed Jones Hooks, executive director of the Jekyll Island Authority, that the college could not carry out an agreement made public just over a year ago under which Fins would become a teaching restaurant by fall of this year.

The college’s culinary arts program is in the middle of a five-year continuing re-accreditation process and undergoing a comprehensive review of its curriculum, Aloia said in a release.

“We deeply appreciate the Jekyll Island Authority’s willingness to work with us to partner with all the exciting developments on Jekyll Island,” Aloia said.
