To the casual onlooker, Fish’s move to 13th and Locust streets, has gone swimmingly. But as you can imagine, when opening a new restaurant — or in this case, simply relocating an established one — there’s plenty of opportunity for things to go awry. For Fish’s newly appointed pastry chef Monica Glass that meant the arrival of the ice cream machine she had hoped would be in place for the restaurant’s opening, has been delayed. Not to worry though, because she’s found a work-around, Philly Chit Chat’s HughE Dillon reports. Glass is getting a boost from the crew at Joe Garces’ Amada. They’ve stepped up and are letting her use their ice cream maker. She’s reportedly been running over to Old City each morning to make ice cream at the tapas temple, and bringing it back to Fish. Talk about your friendly competition. [Philly Chit Chat]
