When you dine in a fish market, you’re not looking for frills or fanciness. It’s freshness you’re after.

At these fish market eateries, everything on the menu is on display in the showcase. Buy it to cook at home or eat it in the attached restaurant.


PINE AIRE FISH & DELI, 140 Pine Aire Dr., Bay Shore, 631-231-1655

This reliable Salvadoran seafood house is attached to a fish market. It’s hard to find fresher ceviche. Other picks include sopa de pescado (a fish soup-stew), grilled jumbo shrimp and fried porgy.

At this colorful eatery alongside a fish store, chef-owner David Girard offers fried and grilled classics. He also gets inventive with such dishes as horseradish-crusted codfish and Thai glazed shrimp.
