I got a phone call one day from a friend who lives nearby. She wanted to know where I recommend she go to buy fresh fish. I told her that I only buy my fish and seafood from Greenwich Lobster Bin on Railroad Avenue. I asked, ‘Where do you usually buy your fish?’ She proceeded to tell me that she always bought it from the local Stop & Shop but most recently she bought some cod and when she opened it, there was an actual live worm in the package with her fish! I told her that I recommend never buying fish from a chain food store because it is what the industry refers to as Grade B fish. (I learned that from the book, ‘The Secret Life of Lobsters.’)
That story inspired me to start this page of my recommendations of the best places for particular things from the best BBQ ribs to where to buy cold cuts in the Westchester/Fairfield area. Here are my opinions on the best of the best! Please suggest places that you think I should try!
Where I Buy…
