      Nice seafood store on 21st and 2nd Avenue. Gramercy Seafood?

      There is a branch of Garden of Eden on 3rd, between 23rd and 24th, I think. I know I have purchased meat from there, but I'm not quite so sure about fish.

        I see that someone recommended the seafood place
        on 2nd/21st Street. I'll second that, although I
        still wish we had a Citarella in the area. Next
        door to this seafood place is a butcher shop which
        looks good, although I've never shopped there.

        I love Garden of Eden, but my one experience buying
        fish there was negative - not at all fresh.

        Todaro is okay, but I think overpriced.

        There is a butcher counter at Les Halles
        (28th/Park) selling limited cuts of meat.

          Catch 21 (I hope I got this right!) Is a lovely fish store rather improbably located on 21st between Park and B'Way (midblock).

            There's the French Butcher on Second and I think 19th. They have excellent meat and sausage as well as some great cooked dishes, like meatloaf.

              There is a common man's (e.g., not yuppie or import) butcher on 3rd between 34th and 35th don't remember what its called.

                I often go to Gramercy Fish & the French Butcher. They are located on 2nd Avenue near 21st Street. Very nice spots. Bruno Ravioli is there also.

                  Yes! This string of stores has turned into a very nice provisioner. I've gotten some excellent items at Bruno and the others. Plus the Arte Moderne facade is lovely.
