Best Fresh Seafood Market
- Tango Dec 6, 2004 08:54 AM
Where can I find a great, fresh-as-possible seafood market in Manhattan? I'm looking for the store to have great product, good service with excellent knowledge of the differences among the varities offerered and good know-how regarding cooking strategies.
I need AK King Crab Legs, Lobster tails, halibut, larger scallops, etc for Christmas Eve dinner. Price is not a factor (yet).
Thanks in advance for any recs.
The market at Chelsea Market is excellent although a little pricey. There are a few on 9th ave in the 40's that I also frequent and haven't been dissapointed. And lastly if you realy know your fish Chinatown is CHEAP and varried. Just be sure you know what you are buying.
I think Wild Edibles in the Grand Central Market (there's also a branch on third avenue in the high 30's) has impeccable freshness and really good customer service. If you go to the Grand Central Market branch, the other fish seller, Pescatore, is also quite good.
Thanks for the quick replies. I'm headed over to GCS this afternoon, so I'll stop by at Wild Edibiles.
