‘Simply Hooked’ is One Inspection from Clinton Street Launch

Simply Hooked is simply one inspection from its maiden voyage.

The Clinton Street fish-and-chips joint peeled away the white butcher paper from its windows not too long ago, and instead replaced with artwork of whales and sea life from students in the New Amsterdam School (62 Avenue B). Behind that veneer, the operation is basically ready to go.

With chef Matthias Leuliette is in the kitchen, Simply Hooked promises “a modern rendering of a timeless classic,” using the “best quality fish from sustainable sources.”

Ownership tells us that Simply Hooked is “millimeters away” from opening at 47 Clinton Street. As you might expect, the final hurdle is a Con Edison inspection. End of month is a likely scenario.

The Lonely Whale Foundation is also involved with the operation, maintaining a “close partnership” with the restaurant. This organization was founded by actor Adrian Grenier in 2015, and seeks to bring people “closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife.”

ICON Realty Management owns 47 Clinton Street, having purchased the property in September 2014, just after unloading the parcels across the street (soon to become condos).
