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.

Here’s more evidence that Max Fish, after initially planning to move to Williamsburg, might end up sticking with the Lower East Side: on the calendar of meetings that Community Board 3 just sent out, a company belonging to the Fish’s owner, Ulli Rimkus, is slated to appear at the April 7 meeting of the board’s liquor license committee.

For every couple of dozen unpleasant openings and closings in LES, there’s one that manages to restore our faith in the neighborhood, if only for a glorious moment. Gallery Sensei, a 2,000 sq. ft. gallery and arts event space at 278 Grand Street, is one such opening. The permanent outpost of the art project of the same name, Sensei promises exhibitions, art events and even booze! Yes, there’s a charming bar in the back of the space ideal for discussing the works on view or how much your rent has gone up this month.

Wasted Again: Max Fish Returned to the LES Last Night

With the overambitious lighting, lack of personal space and countless familiar faces (including the affable Shannon Moore, who along with other former Max Fish bartenders divulged his current whereabouts to us just last week), the Max Fish pop-up party at 203 Houston last night felt a helluva lot like the real deal.

Max Fish owner Ulli Rimkus — who last week told us there wasn’t a set date for the Williamsburg reopening — was all smiles, surrounded by her loyal staff and regulars. Here are some of the choice Instagrams from the evening.
