Where can I buy Branzino in Houston?

I have a great recipe for a whole roasted Branzino and I'm need to know where the great fishmongers and markets are. Thanks!

  1. It's on the menu of several restaurants so someone must be able to get it. I'd suggest you contact Louisiana Foods on W. 12th; they're a supplier to many seafood restaurants.

    Their small retail market is only open limited hours so I'd just call to ask about availability.

    p.s. - you do not want their Total Catch Market which is only on Saturday and specializes in Gulf Coast by-catch only.

    1. Airline Seafood on Richmond is worth checking out.

      1. I was just at the Whole Foods on Bellaire Blvd to buy mussels. They had about a dozen head on bronzinos.

        1. I've seen Branzino at Phoenicia market, on Westheimer between Kirkwood and Dairy Ashford.
