Urgent -- carp?
So it turns out my Czech husband wants to eat carp this evening, in keeping with the tradition in his country... and I didn't even know he was homesick. Someone help, please! Where can we find carp in Manhattan this Xmas Eve? What cuisines even use this unexciting fish? Has anyone seen it on a menu anywhere lately?
Many, many thanks for any help!
Wish I'd seen this sooner--I have seen carp on occasion at the two fish markets on 9th Avenue and 39th Street, but not with any regularity. Chinatown might be a good idea, but quite honestly, I think a trip out to Astoria is your best bet.
But think of it this way--if you don't get the carp, you may just see the golden pig! Now Jezisek...that's another story.
