Last night was the official opening of Mike Stollenwerk’s latest restaurant, 26 North. The Old City BYOB features a seafood-centric menu of Stollenwerk’s greatest hits. Yep, skate wing with truffled spaetzle is on the menu, as is salmon belly and seared octopus. The space feels particularly large for a BYOB. The 48-seats in the long space with high ceilings provides plenty of room between tables. A marked difference for the chef who first got noticed in the tiny kitchen and restaurant of Little Fish. In addition to the seafood hits, 26 North also offers lamb for meat lovers and a vegetarian entree.

The space features exposed brick walls with dark wood accents. The wall art features pages from the Philadelphia Inquirer and other publications. A marble bar in the center of the room is a leftover from when the space was going to be a coffee shop but will be put to good use, especially at lunch.

The restaurant is currently dinner only but weekday lunch will be starting shortly with a “Hand Helds” section.
