A Long Island City seafood store has closed and its owners have notified customers to visit their Brooklyn market.
Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co, which opened at 5-43 48th Ave. in September 2016, has closed its Hunters Point operation and residents are being directed to the eatery’s 114 Nassau Ave. establishment in Greenpoint.
The market stocked fresh foods as well as oven-ready fish options such as stuffed whole fish prior to closing.
The Nassau Avenue location is the company’s only remaining store. It is a fish market and restaurant combined.
They were very expensive and the selection was small. Sad to see them go but when they opened I really hoped they had a sit down area for seafood dinners like their Brooklyn location
Salmon for $29.99 a lb? geez no thank you! The only affordable fish I bought there was a whole Dorado for $9.99 a lb. They were way too expensive I can go to Whole Foods and pay much less for wild caught sustainable fish.
that place was not fresh. i went there twice and received bowel distress for my efforts. now we just need their distribution on 50th Ave to close. it makes the nabe smell like a$$ in the summer and they are always hosing down their fishy sidewalk.
Balderdash. Their fish was all locally sourced, typically line-caught and very fresh. Go back to buying off brand fish fingers at Key Foods, Mongo.
There should always be a cash option. Many people do not trust banks or getting hacked online. So much information has been hacked lately. Not safe.
so you’re saying you dont carry any credit cards or keep any money in banks…ok
I’d love to see a trendy vegan restaurant open soon.
I like to support local business. Not taking cash kept my business away.
Seems like a strange hill to die on. You carry nothing but cash?
Not all people trust debit cards and credit cards for every single person, and poorer people are less likely to use cards as well.
You have more chances of losing your money from your pockets. Only people I can think that have this mentality are those with illegal funds, fake identities or illegal immigrants. No legal citizen with legal money thinks like this lol
High quality fresh seafood is expensive. Maybe the neighborhood just isn’t ready for it yet.
To live there is expensive. Maybe after paying rent no one can afford to eat.
