Wreckfish, Holiday Hours and Ordering Polices and Weekend Specialties 12.17.15 December 16 2015 Posted in

Wreckfish season will be over in a few weeks and we have one last final run coming in this week so take advantage as it won’t be back until mid-April.  Wreckfish have thick, mild flavor fillet with skin well suited to pan searing. 

In other, perhaps more important news, Christmas is next week and we’re already in full gear here at The Lobster Place making sure we have a full selection of the freshest and finest seafood available for all of your holiday festivities.  The usual suspects will be on hand as well as the following specialties: Live blue crabs, live Dungeness, stone crab claws, anchovies, haddock, john dory, kampachi, Atlantic mackerel, tuna belly, uni trays, caviar, lobsters, and live peconic bay scallops.

 It’s also worth mentioning for those of you who are behind on the holiday shopping (ahem) it’s not too late to get gift cards and seafood kits sent to friends and family.  Stay tuned next week for a complete list of Christmas specialties. In the meantime, check out our holiday hours and ordering polices below as well as this weekend’s specialties.
