Don’t let our name fool you — we deliver a full selection of the freshest seafood you can find, including fresh cut to order finfish, live lobster and shellfish, frozen specialty seafood, and Tuna. And since our merger with Gourmet Cargo, we now offer a line of truly unique gourmet foods ranging from specialty beverages to imported butter to fine oils and vinegars.

Product Categories

Specialty & Frozen

Whether you’re looking for fresh Uni, Head On Shrimp, Portuguese Octopus, or Fresh Rhode Island Squid, our freezer and processing facility is stocked with the very best specialty and frozen seafood products on the market. If it swims in the sea and can make your kitchen stand out, we can get it.

Fin Fish

We carry over 50 species of fin fish — from staples like Bronzini, Icelandic Cod, and farm raised Atlantic Salmon — to premium Wild Halibut, Striped Bass, Red Snapper, and Mahi Mahi. Our fish is sourced locally, nationally, and globally, and cut to your precise specifications by our expert butchers. We focus on day-boat and short-trip fish minimizing the time between boat and plate.

Tuna & Swordfish

We are direct importers of Swordfish, Yellowfin, and Bigeye Tuna from docks around the world. Our relationships with exporters in South America, Sri Lanka, Oman, and Australia means that you have access to superior quality fish at exceptional values. And, as NYC’s only distributor of MSC-certified Tuna, we offer unparalleled sustainability in our Tuna program.

Live Lobster & Shellfish

We were the first company to bring wholesale live lobster to NYC in 1974, and we feature one of the city’s best selections of live clams, mussels, and oysters. We source fresh lump and jumbo blue crab meat from Maryland and Louisiana, and dry sea scallops from George’s Bank.

Gourmet Foods

Following its merger with Gourmet Cargo, Lobster Place now features a carefully curated line of Gourmet foods. Our product line includes premium imported beverages, Kusmi Tea, Bordier Butter, olive oil and vinegar, charcuterie, vanilla, and much more.
