Nope. Was that a guess? Or have you actually seen this there? Cos I’m pretty sure it is not there….

I was just guessing. So, I’ll guess again: Brooklyn?

Jimmy – indeed it is – well done Sir. Excellent name, if I may say so. Where do you want your fish?

Yep, the Gourmet Stay boutique hotel in Frederick St, formerly with a demure dark chocolate brown exterior, has now blossomed with a mural – resplendently appropriate to its occupants. They’ve taken the sign down – perhaps it no longer needs one – so I’m not sure if the name stays the same or not, At any rate – looking good.

Their website says: “Gourmet Stay will be re-branding to U Boutique Hotel Wellington from 1 September 2018!” Doesn’t say anything about who the artist / painter was.
