Update: Great to see that Swanky Swish didn’t go the way of Howard’s Flowers and the other Valentine’s buildings – except for Homer and Lisa, the characters all kept their tasks!

Unlike the Aztec Theater, Lard Lad’s and the Springfield Observatory, the three other stand-alone premium buildings, Swanky Fish may not permanently give any of your characters any additional tasks. In fact, even Homer and Lisa lose their Swanky Fish tasks as soon as they’ve eaten there as part of the premium quest – and that’s likely to happen at the end of the promotion for Principal Skinner, Comic Book Guy and Kent Brockman as well. That really says a lot about the quality of its food. While it’s too soon to know for sure, don’t be surprised if it goes the way of O’Flanagan’s Pub.

So Swanky Fish may well be doomed to join El Chemistri and Pimento Grove on Springfield’s list of expensive but unpopular restaurants. At least the other two stand a chance of featuring in future questlines, as we saw with Carl and his one-time only visit to El Chemistri with Kent Brockman. But as it’s a premium restaurant, and a limited time one at that, I seriously doubt whether another diner will ever again pass through Swanky Fish’s doors.

And if you’re thinking about whether to part with 90 donuts and buy Swanky Fish, maybe that decides it for you. So, if you haven’t taken the poll yet, why not do so and find out what others have decided to do about this exclusive restaurant that’s apparently so unloved by the citizens of Springfield (note that the poll won’t register a second vote from the same IP address).
