marshall's smoke fish outlet

  • a

I keep passing this place on the BQE. Its on the east side a little south of the Kosciuskco bridge. (I believe that's the edge of Williamsburg there, not sure - Brooklyn experts will correct me, I'm sure.)

I've stopped several times, and the stupid place is always closed (weekends, monday holidays... etc. I don't get out that way much during the week) - but the specials signed up on the door always look good.

Is this place worth a trip? Is it just Whitefish, or do they have sturgeon, sable, or other yummies... Are the prices as good as the ones posted on the gate?

Inquiring chowhounds want to know.

  1. Excellent, and very good prices.

    But chowhound Allan Evans says he knows a better place in College Point. I, shockingly, have not yet checked it out. Allan, if you're reading along, can you fill us in?

      It's actually in Middle Village, one of the remotest regions of Queens: Rego Smoke House (in the phone book - too early and am too drowsy to get it but it's only accessible by car). The sturgeon can overwhelm by its gentleness and remarkable flavor.

        In Yahoo yellow pages I get

        Rego Smoked Fish Co 6980 75th St Flushing, NY (718) 894-1400

        If this is the place, its not that far off our beaten path...

          It is not in Flushing but Middle Village, which is behind Maspeth and ends at the Greenwood cemetary. Public transportation will be a rough haul but worth it. Nearby (within a mile) is Niederstein's German restaurant.

            Rego is definitely worth a visit - it reminds me of the small smoked fish operations in seaside villages in the UK. But I would highly recommend you do it by car. It is in a really remote and industrial area. And when you get there, watch carefully, it is only marked by a fairly small tin sign.

            As far as the German restaurants in the area, I personnally would head for Zum Stammtisch instead of Neidersteins. Although according to my parents, Neidersteins has a pretty good lunch deal.

            1. re: wayne

              Regarding Neidersteins for lunch, you have to sit at the bar and they only serve lunch Monday thru Saturday.
              For $5.50 you get a hot open Roast Beef sandwich that will blow you away. Wash that down with Spaten or Dinkelaker for $2.50 and that will do it. If you want real German food, then go to Zum's.

    2. Shopped here for years when I practiced in Greenpoint. Everything you wantin smoked fish. Good prices. Well worth taking the time to stop there. Live in Arizona now and can only dream about this place.
