  1. New Deal in Cambridge is my favorite. Always great seafood, including whole fish. Plus the owners are great.

    1. totally agree w/rebs: new deal all the way. best place in boston to get sushi/sashimi grade seafood. carl and everyone there is very knowledgeable and super nice to one and all. a large segment of their clientele includes native japanese who know and want the best. you can easily get into a fun conversation about all things seafood there. enjoy!

      1. New Deal is the best place I have ever bought fish. Family owned. Highest quality. Reasonable prices. Complete honesty and sincerity.

        I drive all the way form Canton to buy my fish there.

        Tell Carl that Chris sent you!

          if you drive, I love Captain Mardens in Wellesley. IMHO, the best there is.

          1. Has anyone tried Mercato del Mare in the north end? Went by the other day and just looked, didn't buy, but it looked wonderful!

                1. re: Northender

                  I go there quite a bit because it is near my office. Everything is fresh, and it seems to have a high turnover of product.
