Question: Any fish market finds this month in New York?

Answer: The New Fulton Fish Market at Hunts Point in The Bronx has an interesting wide selection. However the one that made the biggest impression on me this trip was The Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market on Ninth Avenue (between 15 & 16th streets). So popular around lunch and dinner time for quick service at their Cull & Pistol raw bar for oysters, fresh sushi,  steamed lobster plus more selections. Lots of East Coast oysters from cheapest ($2.30) Oyster Ponds (Orient Bay NY) plus John’s River from Damariscotta River from Maine & Nonesuch from Scarborough River in Maine but also West Coast more expensive ($3.70) Kumamoto from Humboldt Bay California – and even Fanny Bay from Baynes Sound in British Columbia Canada. Amazing fish filets to take away and cook yourself too. Fresh Wild Cod from Iceland $19.95 per pound, Wild Halibut from Nova Scotia $26.95, and frozen Chilean Sea Bass from the Falkland Islands $37.95. Most eye opening was the farmed choices for Dover Sole from Spain $19.95, and from Turkey for Dorade $7.95 & Bronzini $8.50. Definitely a place to check out!
