You had to assume once Little Fish was named one of the best seafood restaurant’s in the country by Bon Appetit that owner and chef Mike Stollenwerk would be looking for bigger waters. And it was confirmed today by Michael Klein that Stollenwerk is taking over the old Astral Plane location at 1708 Lombard Street with fish. The liquour licensed restaurant will more than double the size of Bella Vista’s Little Fish.

Look for the first tables to be served the week after Labor Day.

  • The current space is definitely cramped and doesn’t really lend itself to the cuisine, so all in all the move is probably a good thing, but I’m sure it will bum out the people in the neighborhood use to having amazing fish in their back yard.

    They’re not closing Little Fish yet. From the Klein article:
    “His sous chef, Chad Jenkins, is aiming to buy into Little Fish and will run Sixth and Catharine, Stollenwerk says.”

    Either way, good for them. Little Fish is awesome and the Astral Plane location is a good spot.
