Fishmonger coming to East Village

Posted on | April 1, 2010 | No Comments

According to EVGrieve, a seafood restaurant & fishmonger will be opening up at 171 Avenue A @11th street.  As you can well imagine, this is a major bonus for us seafood lovers in the East Village, we’ve been without a fishmonger for some time!

According to the owner/operator;

I am planning on opening a seafood market/restaurant/high-end cocktail bar in that space… We certainly need a place to buy fish around here.

Yeah, yeah — fishmonger. There will be a display case when you first walk in about 6 feet by 3 feet with approximately 20-25 different types of fresh seafood. Most of it will be kept in the basement and brought up as we run out of things in the case. This way we can do the volume of a bigger store with a fraction of dedicated space.

I’m really looking forward to this!
