kaTcH Fish House sinks in Capitol Hill

kaTcH Fish House, which opened early this summer at 1300 Pennsylvania Street, apparently didn't catch on with neighbors in the Capitol Hill 'hood, because the space, barely five months old, sunk at the end of October. "It's very simple," says former co-owner Chris Deutschman. "There wasn't enough business."

But while the concept didn't work in Capitol Hill, Chris notes that he's open to other locations.
