Report: Max Fish making it official in Williamsburg
[You never know when a photo of the Max Fish toilet will come in handy]
The folks at Max Fish have applied for a liquor license with Community Board 1 in Brooklyn, Gothamist reports today.
As reported earlier, high rents are apparently sending the Ludlow Street mainstay since 1989 packing to Metropolitan Avenue ... where, Gothamist notes, they have designs on a vacant 3,000-square-foot space that was asking $14,000 a month in rent.
There's a hearing to discuss the bar's application next Thursday at the Swinging 60s Senior Center, 211 Ainslie St., at 6:30 p.m.
We were told earlier that Max Fish is eyeing an August closing date on Ludlow Street. We were also told that the Asbury Park branch of Max Fish won't be reopening this summer.
