Max Fish Gets CB3 Approval to Reopen on Orchard

It looks like Max Fish will indeed reopen in the old GalleryBar space at 120 Orchard Street: At last night’s SLA subcommittee meeting for Community Board 3, many business owners showed up to support proprietor Ulli Rimkus, and despite some resistance from LES Dwellers, CB3 approved Max Fish’s full-liquor license unanimously. Meanwhile, the owners of Sweet Chick have taken over the former Max Fish space. At least it’s not getting turned into another CVS or a juice bar. [Earlier, Bowery Boogie]
