French/Asian eatery Fish will close down after 17 years on Upper King. The restaurant opened at 442 King St. in 2000, when very few businesses populated that stretch of the street. Fish has seen some shakeups recently, including long-time chef Nico Romo leaving to open his own restaurant in Mount Pleasant. The restaurant brought on chef David Shuttenberg to replace Romo.
Yesterday, Patrick Properties Hospitality Group (PPHG), which holds Fish, announced that the institution will close after dinner service on July 15 to make way for a new restaurant. PPHG will premiere a eatery “incorporat[ing] the flavors and heritage of the coastal South” in place of Fish. The updated restaurant, named Parcel 32, will open in the late fall.
PPHG says that it will retain the Fish staff during the transition.
