26 or twentysix was a bistro-style restaurant owned by George and Harriett Reis from 2006 to 2015. It was located at 1210 20th Street South, next door to Reis' upscale seafood restaurant Ocean.

The fare was more casual at 26 than at its older sibling, and the restaurant featured a late night menu on weekends. No reservations were accepted. The restaurant's general manager was Nicole Hutto. Chefs under Reis included Blythe Spellman, Angela Schmidt, and Brody Olive.

The bistro closed in March 2015 to make way for the 5 Point Public House oyster bar.
