Salmon Caviar in S. Westchester

m

I'm probably going to serve blini with creme fraiche and salmon caviar as a Thanksgiving
appetizer. Does anyone have a favorite source for fish roes in southern Westchester?

Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, not southern Westchester, but imo worth the drive to Mount Kisco Smokehouse in, well, Mount Kisco. They have bulk salmon roe which is really fresh and delicious...not to mention so many other wonderful products there!

      Hmm--might be worth a trip up there on a Saturday with lunch at the Little Kabab Station afterwards.

      Do they have a website? I couldn't find one.

        I don't think they have a website. I also don't think they're open on Saturdays, definitely do call before you go!

      You can get Ikura (salmon roe) at daido and ninjiya in white plains-they might also have tobiko (both regular and wasabi flavored).

      The Mt. Kisco Smokehouse does have kick a** fish though. Never tried the roe.
      I believe they are open Sat., but close at noon on Sun.

        I'm pretty sure that Balduccis in Scarsdale might have it.

          Yes, I need to call since Saturday really would be the only time we could get there.

          And Adam, where are Daido and Ninjiya in White Plains?

          Any opinion about La Maree/Portier roes?

            White Plains, NY 10605

            Nijiya

            18 N Central Ave

            Hartsdale, NY 10530-I thought it was WP

            I prefer Daido over Nijiya because they have a better selection.

          Costco carries it, too! Daido in white plains also sells it at a decent price.

              There is a good place in the industrial section of Mamaroneck. I think it is on Center Street, the name is La Mare. It looks like a wholesale place but they are open to the public, good prices, very fresh. It's just a couple of blocks from the train station.
