The Joe Fish restaurant will open on Main Street in North Reading Monday, Dec. 10, according to the building department and an employee from Joe Fish in North Andover. The restaurant will be located in the old Piccadilly Pub.
Owners of Joe Fish in North Andover Jim Demetri and Jim Dietz pulled a demolition permit for the North Reading location back in August. The interior was gutted and renovated and the exterior was repainted and new signage installed. The restaurant will have 150 seats and 20 bar seats. The liquor license passed unanimously at a selectmen meeting in October.
If they keep the same hours as their North Andover restaurant, they will open for lunch at 11:30 a.m. and close the kitchen at 10:30 p.m. The bar will close one half hour later at 11 p.m.
The owner did not return phone calls from Reading-North Reading Patch.
