Opinions on Chelsea Market's The Lobster Place?

I just moved to Chelsea and I was psyched about the
shops in the Chelsea Market at 16th and 9th (esp. the
AWESOME Thai place) but several times now I have gone
into The Lobster Place and found it a little
unsanitary. I've had their lobsters, but I've been
squeamish about buying other seafood there. Has
anyone had good or bad experiences with buying fish
re: Allan Evans
The Lobster Place has been my primary fish source
for the last couple of years, and while I entirely
understand your wariness, I can report no bad
experiences. The fish I've had--while not always
superlatively fresh--has been consistently decent,
and sometimes excellent.
On the other hand, I second Allan re: Buon Italia--
I've stopped buying their buffalo mozzerella, which
has been distinctly past its prime on more than
one occasion. Yuck, indeed.
While others may have mentioned this, try the lobster roll, it's fantastic and a great deal. In addition, while you're in the Chelsea Market, go to Amy's for her twists, prosciutto bread and cheddar sandwich with cilantro and chipotles. Make sure they melt it.
