any good butchers & seafood markets in E30s or 20s
does anyone know of good butcher or seafood market in this area?
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.
