Wild Coho Salmon and Weekend Specialties 9.11.14

Wild King Salmon season is coming to a close and while we can hear a collective sigh out there, the good news is that Wild Coho Salmon is here to take its place.  We’re seeing some fantastic Coho coming from the Quinault River in Washington (pictured above).  These Cohos run through October and are harvested by the Quinault Indian nation along the central coast of the Quinault River.  These fish are bled and iced immediately after retrieval and processed at a plant located only minutes away from the river.  Judging from the quality of the fish we’ve seen so far and the location pictured above, it doesn’t get any better than this!

It’s also worth mentioning that there are still a few seats available for Cull&Pistol’s five course collaborative tasting menu highlighting Norwegian seafood and Scandinavian ingredients next Tuesday.  Reservations for either the 6:30pm or 8:30pm seating may be made by calling Cull & Pistol directly at 646-568-1223 or by booking through our website, www.cullandpistol.com

Wreckfish and Weekend Specialties 8.28.14

This week, we're featuring wreckfish, a rare finfish from an artisan fishery off the coast of South Carolina.  Named because of its penchant for swimming in deep waters - often around abandoned shipwrecks- wreckfish is a notoriously difficult fish to catch.  Fishing equipment consists of single weighted lines with no more than a handful of circle hooks baited with squid.  This artisan method of fishing protects the environment by ensuring no destruction of the sea-floor habitat and no discarded by-catch.  Wreckfish has a sweet flavor and thick, flaky fillet that is similar to grouper.

Please note that we will be closed on Monday, September 1st for Labor Day.  We’ll be open normal hours all other days.
