If yesterday’s news that Max Fish is returning to the Lower East Side via Orchard Street caused you to wonder whattup with its old home on Ludlow, well, we just got the answer: Sweet Chick, the Williamsburg chicken-and-waffles joint, just announced that it’ll open May 7, with its hangover-helping brunch launching that weekend.

The former Max Fish space will now seat 60 and will be “reminiscent of a Southern shotgun-style house in layout,” according to a press release that promises “reclaimed city and garage doors and antique relics” for decor as well as more late-night bites. New menu items will include chicken-fried short ribs with mashed potatoes and beer gravy, a Greek-yogurt cheesecake with Meyer-lemon marmalade, pork tenderloin with collard greens and black-eyed peas, a grilled quail salad with fig puree and toasted hazelnuts, and (to drink) a peach-and-mint-infused iced tea with bourbon.

We will, of course, have a photo of the hallowed space’s makeover once the time comes.
