Where can I buy good quality seafood in the UES?

  1. The best place I know of is Dorian's. They are over on York Avenue, but deliver, and I trust them completely in terms of receiving excellent seafood that I've not picked myself.

    My next choice would be Citarella, on Third Ave. & 75th St. Eli's, a bit further north on Third, also has beautiful seafood, but it is very, very expensive.

    Are you looking for anything in particular?

      I'm another fan of Dorian. She has scrumptious crab cakes (for a price of course -:)

    2. Definitely Citarella. Great selection, super fresh and good prices.

      1. Agatha & Valentina
        79th & First

        Great seafood

          Agata & Valentina does have a terrific seafood department.

        2. Is Dorian's more expensive than Citarella's?

            Yes, I think it is. And it's even better. I don't use them all the time though.
