Has anyone see any bottarga (salted & dried mullet/tuna roe) around recently? I tried DiBruno Bros. but they stopped carrying it, and I don't know where else to look. Any suggestions appreciated.

  1. Call Ippolito's. They have been adding a lot of new (non-fresh seafood) items lately.

    1. Call Ippolito's and ask for Anthony. He'll get it in less then two days.

        Thank, guys.

        Ended up at Ippolito's, and though bottarga wasn't in stock, it is orderable. Meanwhile, Anthony set me up with some beautiful fillets of black sea bass that ended up as a very memorable tartare. Can't believe I'd never been to this place before; best fishmonger I've come across in the area.

      2. i have had good luck on Sausage Debauchery.

        I have gotten both the bottarga and salted anchovies.
