The wait is over — The Banks Fish House opened on Wednesday, July 21st! Chef Robert Sisca of Bistro du Midi and Himmel Hospitality‘s Chris Himmel have combined their seafood-loving forces to transform the old Post 390 space into a two story eatery focused on a fresh take on New England classic fare.
At the corner of Clarendon and Stuart Streets this new spot will serve a menu teeming with seafood, designed to evoke the old school New England Fish House with fresh takes on classic regional specialties. With dishes like crispy soft shell crab black garlic Caesar salad with white anchovies, chef’s clam chowder topped with crispy pork belly and served with a warm dinner roll thanks to pastry chef Alyx Abreu, along with chef Robert Sisca’s clam boil inspired by Wampanoag culinary traditions and growing up fishing with his father on Long Island — each dish has a story of inspiration behind it.
The first floor dining room features a 26-seat bar, high-top tables, and a fully functional raw bar, while the second floor offers diners a glimpse behind the scenes via the open kitchen as well as views of Trinity Church from their floor-to-ceiling windows. There’s multiple private dining rooms, two fireplaces, and an oversized horseshoe bar to anchor the space. With the beverage program handpicked by the Himmel Hospitality Group’s award-winning beverage team, focused on beers, wines, cocktails and mocktails that compliment the seafood-focused menu.
The Banks Fish House will be open for lunch Tuesday-Friday from 11:30am-3:00pm, open for dinner Tuesday-Thursday from 5:00-10:00pm. On Friday and Saturday they’ll be open from 5:00-11:00pm.
