Fish markets in Westchester

Where do Westchester Chowhounds buy their fresh fish (and shellfish)? Looking for fishmongers who offer quality, variety, value and expertise...

      I haven't seen any that are very recent or specific to Westchester. Do you have a link?

        OK, I found a couple of recent threads (including http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/511383 and http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/628469) with the following gourmet stores, supermarkets and seafood stores receiving at least some favorable (but sometimes mixed) recommendations for seafood.

        Any specific comments on these as to quality, variety, value and expertise?
        Any additional recommendations?

          Portier Fine Foods is excellent for smoked fish. I was told that they supply Balducci's smoked fish.

          A&P has next to no service. Every time I have been there and asked when the fish had been delivered, the person behind the counter knew nothing! If they can't tell me that the fish was delivered today vs last Thursday, I won't buy it.

          Stew Leonards, Morton Williams and DeCicco (Scarsdale) are all fine.I feel like they get enough customers to know that the fish is fresh, and there are always knowledgeable people to help behind the counter.

            Agreed on Mt Kisco Seafood - great fish, and they added a great butcher counter (small but high quality) a couple of years ago that we've been very happy with. And now they have a sushi chef there preparing sushi as well - yum!

            I like Eastchester Fish, but if you live in Southern Westchester then it is worth making the short trip to Randazzo's on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.

                Highridge Fishery in Yonkers is fantastic. The grey sole is superb. 1791 Central Avenue.

                Prior to stepoing foot into a fishmonger, one may wish to review one or more of the following sites to educate oneself on what to look for and what to ask:

                    i just tried this new place in port chester on regent street called elaine's. i bought some oysters and they were terrific. and if you spend $15, which buys you a dozen and a half, you get a pound of large shrimp free. and it was the heaviest pound!!! also they have dayboat porgies.
