The Tin Fish To Open on Clematis in May
The original plan was to open in Fort Lauderdale. Yet in a meeting with the restaurant founder Joseph Melluso earlier this year, he had the opportunity look at three properties and fell in love with the West Palm location.
The fish-centric menu is inspired by dishes Melluso developed while working for chef Libby Hillman and Tuscan chef Giuliano Bugialli.
The first Tin Fish opened in 2000, so named for a restaurant property Melluso was working on in San Diego in 1998. In researching the property, Melluso learned it was owned by a hardware merchant in 1856 who was also a tinsmith and a gadget fixer. The owner also sold fish in front of the property. Tin Fish stuck with him, the name for restaurants in California, Minnesota, Washington, Kentucky, and Florida.
