where to buy or eat live sea urchin (uni)

I want to find a place that serves sea urchin in the shell or a large seafood market that sells live sea urchin in Manhattan

  1. Yesterday I was at the Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market and they had Live Sea Urchin.


    1. Hi. I have not had sea urchin in the shell at Soto, but if you are an uni fan, you owe yourself a dinner at Soto! It is pricey but his use of uni in multiple dishes is sublime.

      1. citarella usually has it. they have scallops in the shell as of yesterday and saturday

          Yes - my husband occasionally gets sea urchin from there as well - worth calling ahead though.
