Can anyone recommend a great seafood shop to buy lobsters and clams?

    Sea Breeze fish market, 9th avenue at 40th street. Then you can go next door and buy taramosalata at international foods.

      Citarella is great, but I think the prices are better (for equal quality) at Lobster Place.

          I vote for Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market. Fresh fish and affordable prices.

          I second Citarella. They have fresh lobsters, cooked whole lobsters, and lobster tails - frozen Maine and South African, but pretty good.

            I've been very happy with the ones I've bought at Citarella.
