  1. Chinatown. There are fish merchants on Canal but my favorite is on Grand, just east of Bowery.

      Thanks. Been through the Canal merchants and was somewhat unimpressed. I'll give the one on Grand a try.

        If I recall correctly, there is also a good one on Bayard.

    2. Lobster Place in Chelsea Market usually has head-on shrimp...not sure if they are the jumbo sort but they have been pretty good-sized...
