Inside the Fishtown Cheu: Bigger, maybe better, than the original Noodle Bar

Cheu Fishtown, which makes its home in a former stable at 1416 Frankford Ave. (at the corner of Belgrade), is a spinoff of the partners’ Wash West joint of the same name. But it just might be even better than the original.

    Inside the Fishtown Cheu: Bigger, maybe better, than the original Noodle Bar
    You can expect more room in the house and more dishes on the menu. If you thought Fishtown was hot before, just wait till this weekend. On Friday, July 21, Shawn Darragh and Ben Puchowitz open their third standalone restaurant, and it promises to be just as fun, creative and delicious as their previous endeavors.
