Weekend NY update


We have a really nice mix of specials for the weekend. One or more sure to fit your menu needs.
The quality of fresh shrimp from Florida has been great all year, but todays shipment seems to be even more firm and sweet. And at these prices you cannot go wrong. Size is 16/20 per pound. And this is just the tip of Florida's bounty because we also have stone crab claws, black grouper and available Tuesday we are taking orders for diver caught live spiny lobster.

Just landed at JFK this morning and only hours out of the water we have three specials from Iceland. Big sustainable Arctic char are here, they are running 4 to 6 pounds and we have a few hundred pounds. Get your order in early to get these bigger fish. Dayboat Icelandic cod is available as well as halibut from this island nation. We are always excited to get this shipment and the fish never disappoints us. This country's respect for the sea shows in their fish.

Jersey boats are starting to produce and we have black sea bass showing up in fair quantities. The black sea bass are not only in rigor and coming in with candy red gills but are truly jumbo in size, most are in the 3-6 lb range. Good sized fish are the trend with these boats and we also have doormat jumbo fluke, a few today were easily 8 lbs and would make a great alternative to halibut.

We will be getting some more Chilean turbot tonight. These have started to become a menu favorite of some of you, so we have increased our par levels to make this a staple item. Go ahead and put it on your menu, we got you covered.

Rounding out tomorrows selections are corvina, onaga, tile fish, razor clams, stripers, and dover sole.
