Conte's Fish Market, Mt Kisco
This place is supposed to be a retail store with a few informal tables where they serve preparations of their own seafood.
However, a perusal of their menu indicates pricing comparable to upscale seafood restaurants in the city! What gives? $30-40 for an entree in a retail store? How do they get customers to pay this? (China White customers, lol?)
On another seafood note, is Seabreeze on the Rye waterfront shut down? Their website is closed down...
Having been to the fish market, I really can't see eating there. I might want to eat fish, but I don't want to smell a fish store while I'm doing it. I like a bit more from a restaurant experience than just the food - it needs to have a nice atmosphere and good service. I just looked at the menu on line, and those prices are very high. Granted, I'm sure the seafood is terrific, but I'd prefer to buy the fish and cook it at home than to eat in a fish store. At least the Mt Kisco Fish Cellar was not in the store!!
Eating in a store can be fun-- but only if the prices are reasonable!! The non-ambience and minimal expenditure on appearance should lend itself to LOWER prices, not higher prices. Who's patronizing Conte's, anyway?
P.S. If the fish is very fresh, there should be NO smell, if the fish store you went to had a smell, I recommend you stay away, wincountry.
