Fish stores in Gramercy

j

I live on 25th and 3rd, and I used to shop at Gramercy Fish Co. (now closed). Do you guys have any recs for good fish stores in the neighborhood? I know of Wild Edibles, but I'd like to find something closer and cheaper.

I was thinking Eataly might be an option, but it might not be worth the trip to just pick up 1 item.

Any thoughts?

    I've been buying most of my fish at Eataly since it opened. They have super fresh stuff but it's slightly higher than normal. Did Gramercy Fish Co. close or just move over closer to 1st avenue?

      I haven't seen it. Did you notice a new location?

        A fish market called Rosiendo (or something very similar to that) opened on 22nd just west of 1st ave. Not sure the relation to the old Gramercy Fish Co., nor have I gone there yet, so I'm not sure if its any good.

          i thought the gramercy fish co just moved into the butcher next door.

        Todaro Bros on 31st and 2nd.

          Probably quicker to go to The Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. Always fresh. Nothing frozen. Ever.

            If the OP lives on 3rd ave, how is it quicker to go to 10th Ave? that would take 30+ min each way by bus alone.

              It makes no sense. I've been to Chelsea, and it's 30 minutes to get home. I'm looking for somewhere in the neighborhood.

              I went to Eataly, and the selection was just decent, with high prices.

              Todaro's quality looked to be lacking.

              Gramercy Fish Co. was the best in the neighborhood. Any other choices?
