Little Fish to spawn Fish

Mike Stollenwerk of Bella Vista's much-praised Little Fish -- and yes, it's a little BYOB of but 22 seats -- is taking over the former Astral Plane at 1706-08 Lombard St. with a seafooder (plus bar).

The name at the moment is Fish, which will be spelled "fish" in a Courier typewriter font.

It'll feature a menu of cold, raw and cooked seafood, plus a few nonseafood items. It'll seat 50 plus 12 at the bar. Simple decor; if you frequented Sovalo in Northern Liberties, you'll recognize the chairs, which Stollenwerk bought from Joe Scarpone.

He hopes to open the week after Labor Day.

His sous chef, Chad Jenkins, is aiming to buy into Little Fish and will run Sixth and Catharine, Stollenwerk says.
