Good-bye Mr. Fish & Chips!
Back in early 1970's, Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips opened on Michigan Avenue on the East side of Lansing. Now, another great local favorite is about to close it's doors.
Now, with the news coming from The Lansing State Journal, 48 years is enough and it will be time to hang us his shirt and tie and call it a day. Or is that five decades?
The LSJ article states that Dave Miller, now 63, was a student at Eastern High School when he started in 1970 and was a fry cook. He later went on to purchase the restaurant and that was later renamed to just "Fish & Chips" in 1988.
Many a lenten meal has been enjoyed on Fridays during the season and will prompt a change next year. That is of course someone buys it and reopens by next year.
Until that happens, Fish & Chips located at 2418 East Michigan Ave. and will stay open at least through April, giving us one last chance to get a taste of what yummy goodness planked fries, fish and hush puppies soaked in malt vinegar was like for us kids in the 70's. As I can pretty much assure you that the recipes like Dave, have remained the same.
