Now open: Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co.

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.

We stopped by and sampled a few of their dishes including fried clams, fish tacos, kelp pad Thai and a selection of East Coast oysters. Everything was fresh and fantastic.

From their website:

At Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. we believe that sustainable seafood starts with responsibly managed fisheries, transparency and traceability, and well-informed customers.  Our goal is to serve as the go-between from our dedicated and responsible seafood suppliers to our sustainably-conscious customers in an effort to provide the highest quality seafood there is while helping to restore our marine and coastal ecosystems in the process.

We see Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. as a seafood market where customers can come in and feel confident that everything offered is sustainably sourced. You can feel good about buying it, knowing that you are contributing to a sustainable movement for the longevity of these fisheries.

We can’t wait to revisit and sample their lobster roll.
