something fishy, this way comes

Heads up!

Two years ago I sneaked into the expansion of the WesternBEEF and got excited about it here:

Later CTT chronicled the arrival of the insulated wall sections here:

I’m amused by simple things.

But now it’s done and stocked and opened!

And the long awaited fish counter is fantastic.

There is a terrific breadth of stock at the moment, all fresh and looking really good.

But the fish we don’t purchase won’t be reordered. :-(

The prices are from 1980! $6 salmon. $9 lobster. $7 jumbo shrimp. It doesn’t get much better than this.

And it doesn’t get much fresher either.

There’s only one way I know to get it fresher.


  1. Looks great and for now a nice variety. What cardinal point are the fish?

  2. Yum, being me some shrimp!

  3. I dunno. What does "What cardinal point are the fish?" mean?

    1. Western Beef, Southern Fish.

  4. Ah. After living for years on the Upper East Side and then moving North to the Bronx. :-)
