We say:

Early in its history, Greenpoint was the home of dozens of shipyards scattered along the East River. Until recently, the neighborhood’s rich maritime history had all but been forgotten until a handful of seafood restaurants — Lobster Joint, The Bounty, Achilles Heel — began paying homage to Greenpoint’s roots.

Now, with the opening of Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. the neighborhood has an excellent seafood market and New England -style fish counter too. The understated space is warm and inviting, with black and white tiled floors, a raw bar, and a marble bar. Up front, Vinny Milburn is in charge of the market featuring fresh locally-sourced seafood and in the back Adam Geringer-Dunn runs the kitchen. The bar features a handful of craft beers and a small, but lovingly-curated selection of wines that pair well with oysters and the other light fare on the menu. You won’t find a better lobster roll anywhere in New York.
