Pineville Tavern Fishtown (2448 E. Huntingdon St., at Gaul) fills the corner space just off Aramingo Avenue that last housed Yesterday’s Tavern.

The Abruzzeses gutted the space, hiring noted architect/restaurateur Jim Hamilton of Lambertville to replicate a 1920s-era neighborhood bar.

It was the last project of Hamilton, who died in February.

Though the name says Fishtown, locals may quibble with that designation — it’s more accurately Kensington or Port Richmond.

Some nifty features from local artists include Illia Barger’s 12-by-6-foot interpretation of Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss along the staircase wall and Vanessa Fenton’s artfully cut-away tin ceiling panels.

The second floor features a raw bar and Steinway concert grand piano surrounded by banquet seating, bronzed mirror, and upholstered velour walls.

The piano is on loan from Frederick “Babe” Koslowski, who owned the long-ago Babe’s Steakhouse nearby.

The Abruzzeses’ menu includes a “greatest hits” of their Pineville menu, including ravioli, “Bawlmer” crab cakes, fried chicken, BBQ ribs, and the so-called Million Dollar Bacon Burger.
