The St. John's restaurant scene is about to get a little bigger, with the planned opening of St. John's Fish Exchange.

Inspired by downtown St. John's fish-oriented heritage, the menu for St. John's Fish Exchange Kitchen and Wet Bar is filled with seafood options like crab cakes, cod tongues, sea bass, halibut and cod.

The restaurant, which is being opened by the same people behind Legros and Motti, is slated to open Dec. 1 in a section of 351 Water Street that overlooks St. John's Harbour. 

The high-rise currently houses parking, office and retail spaces.

Chef Maurizio Modica, who was brought in shortly before Legros and Motti closed, will be the head chef at the St. John's Fish Exchange.

In the meantime, there are no immediate plans to reopen Legros and Motti.
