Things have been going swimmingly at Little Fish since chef-owner Mike Stollenwerk reopened for regular business last Thursday. He and his crew took a week off after the rechristened Queen Village BYOB made her maiden voyage at its new location on New Year’s Eve. “It felt good to finally get something open,” Stollenwerk told Grub Street. “We only had eight days to turn [the former Salt & Pepper space] around, but everything went really well.” As for his Fathom Seafood House, still marooned out on East Girard awaiting zoning approval? “We should be okay, but knock on wood,” Stollenwerk said.

“Fathom’s looking like the end of January,” Stollenwerk added. “We have a zoning hearing on January 19.” The restaurant, which originally aimed for a fall 2010 opening, is at the ready for an opening. The zoning hearing is its final hurdle.

Little Fish serves dinner seven nights a week, and offers a Sunday five-course prix fixe dinner for $33.
