Valentine's Day and Weekend Specialties 2.9.17 February 08 2017 Posted in

Valentine’s day is right around the corner.  If you're doing the cooking, we've got tons of great specialty seafood, caviar, lobsters and oysters to help you pull off an amazing feast.  We’ll be open normal hours on Tuesday the 14th and hope to see you all! 

Of course, if cooking isn't your thing, check out  Cull & Pistol.  The restaurant will be open for dinner, minus the fuss of those typical pre-fixe Valentine's Day menus.  If you're looking for something a bit faster and more casual, swing on by the Lobster Place and saddle up to the raw bar or grab a lobster and we'll set you up for success! 

If you're celebrating this weekend, see below for our specialty and oyster lists.

Peconic Bay Scallops and Weekend Specialties 11.10.16 November 08 2016 Posted in

 

Peconic bay scallop season has begun this week.  While Nantuckets seem to be more popular, we’ll take these super sweet local beauties any day.  The season starts in the first week of November and is scheduled to last 5 months although most of the production usually happens in the first month.  The preliminary news regarding this season’s outlook is a little negative, with fishermen reporting lackluster hauls so far.  We’re hopeful things might change as more areas of the bay open up.  The good news is we’ll have both live Peconics and shucked Peconics in this weekend.  No recipe needed for the live ones, just shuck them and pop 'em in your mouth!

Pacific Rock Crab and Weekend Specialties 6.2.16 June 01 2016 Posted in

Good news for summer raw bars!  While Stone Crab season is over, Pacific Rock Crab in California is very much in season.  Rock crab are quite similar to Stone Crabs and have a very delicate, sweet flavor.  We’ve been seeing some great quality out of Santa Barbara and should have them on a consistent basis throughout the summer.  Best news is that they’re about half the price of Stone Crab claws!

We have some really nice tripletail coming in from Panama for the weekend.  Tripletail is called tripletail, because, well…. it has three tails.  They’re notoriously difficult to catch, but their super sweet meat is well worth the trouble.  Most anglers will tell you they’ll gladly toss the rest of their catch to get their hands on a tripletail.  Happy eating!

Pacific Saury and Weekend Specialties 1.7.15 January 06 2016 Posted in

Happy New Year to all.  We’ve been lacking in the blog posting due to the holidays, but we’re coming strong for the New Year.  This week we’ll have some amazing Pacific Saury from Japan.  Sauries are small with dark, meaty, rich-flavored flesh that provides bone-free fillets.  They’re most abundant in the late autumn and winter and are caught using Japanese technique of attracting them by lights and scoop-netting them.  Sauries are great on the grill, but also stand up well to a nice braise.

Live Peconic Bay Scallops and Weekend Specialties 11.5.15 November 04 2015 Posted in

The first Monday of November marks the start of Peconic Bay scallop season and it’s always eagerly awaited by aficionados.  While Nantuckets seem to be more popular, we’ll take these super sweet local beauties any day.  The season starts in November and is scheduled to last 5 months although most of the production usually happens in the first month.  Last year’s season was a bit of a bust, but this year hopes to be a better one, with cooler temps in the summer potentially leading to better growth.  We’ll have live peconics in this weekend and we expect to see shucked quite soon.  No recipe needed for the live ones, just shuck them and pop 'em in your mouth!

Peak Oyster Season and Weekend Specialties 10.15.15 October 14 2015 Posted in

This Sunday, we’ll be hosting the 7th annual Oyster Bash as part of the New York Food and Wine Festival.  While tickets are long gone, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy oysters this weekend.  It’s peak oyster season and if anyone has paid any attention to these e-mails, you’re well aware we carry quite a few bi-valves at any given time, both in the store and Cull&Pistol.  What makes it peak oyster season?  Glad you asked.  Oysters are seasonal creatures. Like other animals, they hibernate in the winter, so to prepare for this, they build up their glycogen stores (a type of sugar) by stuffing themselves in the fall. This process makes them sweet and plump during those fall months -- an ideal state for oyster eaters. So, if we don’t see you at Oyster Bash, stop on by Chelsea Market!

In other event news, it’s still not too late to make a reservation for our Maine Lobster Bake on October 29th!  Click the link above for more details and reservation links.

Corvina and Weekend Specialties 10.1.15 September 30 2015 Posted in

This week, we’re featuring corvina from Nicaragua.  Corvina is a member of the croaker and drum family, named because they have large otoliths and air bladders that males can resonate, producing a sound.  Corvina has a nice mild flavor, and medium flake making it great for ceviche, the popular way of preparing it in Central and South America. Check out this great ceviche recipe and sub the fluke with corvina.

Triggerfish and Weekend Specialties 9.23.15 September 23 2015 Posted in

We have some great Triggerfish coming in from the Atlantic coast of Florida.  Triggerfish aren’t caught in large numbers commercially, but they have somewhat of a cult following due to their firm, lean flesh and fine flake.    Triggers can be found year round, but they’re most common in the summer caught using hook and line or as by-catch from trawler and gillnet fisheries.  Check out this baked Triggerfish with dill recipe here.
