Hey, it's Max Fish

Happened to be walking on Orchard Street between Rivington and Delancey the other morning ... and we saw the new Max Fish signage for ourselves for the first time.

BoweryBoogie pointed this out earlier last week. BB hears from owner Ulli Rimkus that the opening date here at No. 120 is currently set for Aug. 2.

As previously noted, the new space will be on two levels ... with some possible scheduled performances as well as a small menu that includes — !!! — chili ($5) and hard-boiled eggs ($1).

Max Fish closed last July after 24 years at 178 Ludlow St. Plans to open an outpost in Williamsburg never materialized.

CB3 approved the liquor license for the space in April.

I wonder, since they closed, will they be considered a new bar by LES Dwellers? Do they have to reapply for a liquor license?

@ anon

CB3 OK'd their liquor license in April. I'll add that to the post.

Max Fish is legend and deserves to be there!
Gotta sa tho - couldn't they have picked, like, clean food? Like, simple things that don't smell bad? Pierogies or mozzarella sticks or something.
