Agata Valentina or Eataly - sushi quality seafood?

Anyone know if either of these places has good sushi-quality seafood?

Citarella is good but with Lobster Place closed temporarily...not a lot of good options. I find Whole Foods seafood gross. I don't buy it anymore

  1. Eataly has outstanding, often wild, seafood. Some good local choices too. Not sure if they would be a source for sushi though since it seems like seafood for sushi requires different considerations/preparation and be best sourced at a more sushi-minded market like Mitsuwa or H-mart in NJ... It's worth asking at Eataly though since their quality is so consistently high.

      And they do serve pesce crudo at Eataly, so it is definetly worth asking. And btw...I feel most everything is better at Eataly than at AV.
