fishmonger/fishmarket on the peninsula?
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good fishmonger on the Peninsula? I am specifically looking for branzino (mediterranean sea bass), and I know my local Whole Foods doesn't carry it.
If I have to, I'll even drive up to the city for a good fishmonger. but I would prefer to stay between Burlingame and Santa Clara.
I would call Andronico's and Drager's and see if they could special order it for you.
The problem I see is specialty fishmongers tend to focus on what's super local and super fresh - Cook's, The Fish Market, Scott's all seem stuffed with north pacific fish. I've never seen a real fishmonger around here - not like you can find in Minnesota, even. 99 Ranch wouldn't have branzino, right?
Oddly, I found a site that will same-day-ship to you:
The los altos whole foods has had it on occasion. You might call them and see.
Some other possibilities would be Cooks Seafood in Menlo Park and the Fish Market in Palo Alto - both sell fresh fish - lot of variety
I wouldn't rule out ranch 99 in Mountain View - i think i saw it there last week actually
