Following a somewhat impromptu and dialed back New Year’s Eve celebration, some practice runs and mock service, a newly reconfigured and relocated Fish will finally officially open tonight. If you recall, chef-owner Mike Stollenwerk is bringing his flagship from 17th and Lombard to the corner of 13th and Locust. The new space, which is on the ground floor of the Independent Hotel, promises three times the space as the previous spot. While the menu’s focus will remain the same, in it’s new digs, Fish will present guests with a larger array of raw bar selections as well as more first and second course options. Plus the desserts options get an upgrade by way of newly appointed Pastry Chef Monica Glass. Fish’s menu boasts an anchovy panzanella salad with roasted shallots, semolina crouton, and grana padano; a pastrami-crusted mahi mahi with braised red cabbage, potato butter and pickled radish; and a prime ribeye with wild mushroom hash and Maytag blue for the landlubbers. Keep reading to peep the full menu.
