Just looking for some fresh fish.
Am I heading in the right direction?

    If I were in that general area, I'd keep going to White Cap in Bay Shore. B&B is spread too thin for me.

        Their restaurant seems to be more important than the fish market, but still; they've been around awhile (although in a different location) so I wouldn't avoid them either if it was a lot closer. Good fish stores are getting hard to find.

          Tell me about it! I gave up on Freeport fish markets. Captn Bens was it for me until a few years ago when they became a "Clam Bar" / club complete with bikini contests. Two Cousins has some issues.
          Southside in Lindenhurst was playing games last I tried. I like the guys at that place in island park, but still, nothing to write home about.
          Johns Farms Plainview is good if you know, and I mean Really know your fish. The stuff I see people buy...

          I guess passing off cooked week old fish is easier than selling raw week old fish...
          Most can't even tell the diff between fresh and frozen anyways.
          Anyroad, the suggestion was to go to Liki Sushi and then I was looking for something along the lines of what I thought B & B was like, so I asked.

            You can usually tell as soon as you walk in, and that doesn't cost anything!

            Check out White Cap someday when you're in the area, you won't be sorry.
