I'm looking for a great place in Brooklyn or Queens to buy smoked fish like sable, lox, etc for a party.
Any ideas?

    If you can make it to Brighton Beach, M & I International Food store stacks up well against, say, Russ & Daughters which is where I'd go in the city. Plus you can get nice black bread to go with the fish.

    I'll never forget how happy my middle europe mama was the first time I took here there...

            Interesting. The Homarus I knew was a smokehouse located in the Westchester area not far from Salem. I wonder if this is a city outlet they opened up?

          Acme is truly terrible, but it is sadly one of the only surviving smokehouses around.

          Brighton Beach has the largest selection I have ever seen. I love Russ & Daughters but I think the stores in Brighton has a larger selection of things I have never seen in this country.
