Smoked Eel and Smoked Haddock Sightings?

I will confess that I've not looked for either yet, and will report back if I find them, but would be grateful if anyone happens to know where to find either of these delicacies.

  1. The fishmonger on Wednesday at Union Square Market occaisionally had smoked eel.
    As for haddock, perhaps you canask them.

      Thanks. I was at the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market this morning and the person to whom I spoke had no idea what I was talking about when I inquired about these two things. I know that a poster in North Carolina got her local Whole Foods to procure some smoked haddock for her a while back.

    2. A month or so back, Citarella's on the Upper West had smoked eel. Not sure if they still have it in stock though ...

      1. Try calling Myers of Keswick's as they should carry them.

        1. MMRuth,

          Were you able to find smoked eel and haddock?

            No, but I haven't really been looking, and haven't been to most of my usual grocery store haunts lately.

          2. Petrossian (58th and 7th) should have smoked eel.
