THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Fish Restaurant Review

: Fish chef/owner Mike Stollenwerk is committed to serving sustainable and local catch at this restaurant, tucked into an intimate 30-seat townhouse, just steps from Rittenhouse Square. Stollenwerk, who grew up fishing in Ocean City, brings a take-no-prisoners attitude to seafood, creating dishes as rich and full flavored as you’d find at any steakhouse. The menu changes constantly with what's fresh, but expect bold, earthy flavors, conjured from the likes of andouille sausage, olive tapenade and wild mushrooms, that pair well with meaty cuts of marlin, cod and skate wing. His Delaware striped bass with Brussels leaves, bacon, butternut squash, green apple and grain mustard is one case in point. And Stollenwerk can be restrained, as a sampling of chilled Pacific oysters simply splashed with Banyuls-fueled mignonette will attest. A well chosen wine list keeps fine company with the chef's creations. Seafood-friendly options abound, whether you prefer a glass of bubbly, a grassy French white or a luscious Viognier with your oysters and fluke. If you like creative cocktails, try the Pimm's Cup with homemade ginger ale, and good craft beers (Abita Amber, Stone Smoked Porter) round out the bar's offerings. For dessert, you can't go wrong with a slice of the homemade Jewish apple cake.
