Migrating Fish Is On the Move Again

Michael Klein is reporting that Mike Stollenwerk’s Fish is moving again. This time the seafood oriented restaurant will stay in the Independent Hotel but move into a smaller space on the Locust Street side. As for the current Fish space, that will become Rhino Bar, a pub serving food till 1 a.m.

This is the third location for Fish, which started out on Lombard Street in 2009 before moving to 13th and Lombard in January. Stollenwerk and his primary investor, Evan Prochniak had a disagreement, which led to the restaurant closing for several weeks in late May and early June.

The newest Fish will open on Tuesday, October 23rd and Rhino Bar will open after that.

    Something smells fishy.

    agree it sounds fishy but i’m not sure i care. the move will revitalize a space that is currently vacant, sketchy, and gross. and hopefully it puts some pressure on the owners of the neighboring burned-out apt building to actually do something. that place is one big windows and doors violation.

    So, what happens to reservations for dates after October 23rd?
