Gourmet grocery/good fish market in Fairfield, CT?
I am moving down to Fairfield on Saturday (ugh, so much packing to do!) and am spending a quiet new years eve in with my girlfriend. I have picked out a basic menu and would like to do some raw oysters as an app, and then a miso cod w/ mushrooms and risotto as the entree. However, I have no idea as to where to shop in the area, except for trader joe's. Any suggestions on a good quality fish market? (menu can be changed of course, thats just a general direction)
When I lived in Fairfield a few years back, this market was top notch:
Garelick & Herbs
1799 Post Rd E
Westport, CT 06880
Swenson's in monroe...its about a 20 minute drive fom fairfield, but call them i think thay have a location closer..excellent, and with notice they'll order for you...they are a clean, knowledgeable fishmonger...
And if you're going to brave Black Rock Turnpike for the fish, you might as well stop in at Billy's Bakery for some bread. Or visit the A&S Fine Foods store which is just a bit south of Swanson's on BRT--you can get your risotto there.
