The Lobster Place Seafood Market builds on the unique sourcing abilities of our wholesale division and direct relationships with aqua-farmers and fishermen. We offer an unmatched selection of fresh, raw seafood specialties to the home cook.
As the largest retail seafood market on the east coast, our customers have daily access to an extensive array of finfish, shellfish, lobsters, shrimp, smoked fish and other specialty seafood products. From common, locally-sourced seafood like wild striped bass and littleneck clams to more exotic items like opah belly, sashimi grade fish, live sea urchin and shaved bottarga - if it swims in the sea, it’s safe to say we can source it for our Chelsea Market store.

The Lobster place is my hands-down favorite place in Manhattan to buy seafood. It is always fresh, the selection is great,and when you walk into the market, the clean smell of the sea tells you the quality of their fish. However, I was extremely disappointed by the fish stock I received yesterday. It usually has a delicious all-be-it mild fish flavor; this batch, at best, tasted like celery water. I am a private chef and was going to use it for one of my clients and had to make a lobster stock on the fly with the heads from the lobsters I had purchased. Total waste of money and time.

Thank you so much. I shop there regularly and have never had an issue in the past with quality but for some reason these were extremely sandy and gritty this time around. In any case, not a problem. I appreciate it! Thanks much!
