Where can I find good Gefilte Fish?

I just picked some up for lunch today at Edison Cafe and while it's fine, it certainly isn't great. Any suggestions for where I can go? I'm open to Outer Boroughs as well and will post this there too.

    I do think it depends on the time of year though.

      I was in Zabar's yesterday and noticed it in the prepared refrigerated section
      (the one closest to the checkouts)

      Also, Citarella's has great gefilte fish...don't know if they make it year round.
      Call and ask 212.874.0383

        Do all or some of these places make it wrapped in carp skin, or is it more like what you get in jars?

    2. Sables on 2nd Ave has homemade gefilte fish that does not even come close the the kind in the jar.
