Where to buy bluefish pate around Boston?

inibble Mar 1, 2012 01:51 PM

I'm visiting Boston for a conference, and wanted to stock up on some things to take back with me to Montreal. One of the things I remember fondly from my time in RI was bluefish pate. But where to buy in Boston? I used to get mine from a fishmonger, but I don't want to drive 1+ hours down there to get bluefish pate.

    I've had great (!!!) smoked bluefish pate from City Feed and Supply in Jamaica Plain.

          Bluefish Pate is available at the Chestnut Hill Legal and at levil 1 of the Harborside restaurant. You can also order is online.

      Thanks, guys. I found some tubs at Whole Foods and enjoyed some for brunch today with lime Tostitos. One guilty pleasure off the list!

          The one you probably had at Whole Foods is from Spence smoked seafood down in Brockton...Locally produced, and it's REALLY GOOD!

            Yes, it was made by Spence and yes, it is pretty good. :)

          Russo's now carries Capt. Dave's Cape Cod bluefish pate. Very good.

            Captain Dave himself was giving out samples at Russo's a few weeks ago. He had a couple of other spreads as well (haddock and salmon I think). All very good.

              Just had Capt Dave's from Formaggio (Huron Ave) and it was really good - smoky fish and cream cheese with a little garlic and horseradish! Definitely a repeat ($6 for 4 oz there)

                  Next door at the Huron Village Fishmonger they had some today as well. Caught it out of the corner of my eye, so I'm not sure if it was made in house.

                The Legal Harborside has a market and will sell their delicious bluefish pate. Also, American Provisions was carrying it this summer, i'm not sure who made it but it was wonderful!!
