The Fish at 1001 W. Jefferson is (temporarily? permanently?) kaput. A loyal SideDisher (aka Bradford Pearson) took a photo of this sign from February 13 that says, “Friends, we are unable to reopen due to a maintenance issue. Please check our Facebook page for updates.”
We’ve tried locating this mysterious and invisible Facebook page, but we haven’t found anything after scouring the internet. The Fish is also not answering its phone.
Back in September, we wrote about the brunch menu at owner Christopher Stanford’s seafood restaurant, which opened early August 2013, but we’ve heard rumors of dissatisfied customers complaining about sticky floors and weird odors. Could The Fish have closed due to a health code violation? Is it closed forever? We’ll let y’all know as soon as we find out.
