Good Morning Chefs and Buyers,
It's that time again. Load up your walk-ins for what is sure to be a nice busy weekend. The weather should stay relatively mild. This should fill the seats from tonight through Sunday. We have beautiful Swordfish in from Australia (Happy Australia Day). We also have more Local Swordfish coming in overnight. Local Tuna is here and looks beautiful. Wild Striped Bass and Black Sea Bass are a mystery as of now. We're being told it might be around, but we aren't holding our breath. We are bringing in extra Golden Tilefish and Red Grouper from Florida. Both of which will make a good substitute. We managed to track down U/10 Scallops. They are in from Massachusetts and we are getting more in tonight which should get us through the weekend.
Super fresh Sow Hake is also here from Massachusetts. They are anywhere from 15 pounds all the way up to 25. We brought in more Dayboat Icelandic Cod which is still in rigor. We Have Nantucket Bay Scallops available today with more set to arrive tonight. Sweet Maine Shrimp is going to be tight going into the weekend. If you need some I would suggest ordering them early.
Portuguese Sardines arrived this morning and look delicious as always. Our delivery of 16/20 Fresh Gulf Shrimp was cut in half. We don't have much available. Please order them as early as you can to ensure you get them. Guatemala sent lovely Mahi Mahi our way. They are 10 to 15 pounds each.
On this day in 1986, the Chicago Bears defeated the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XX. The game wasn't anything too memorable. What is memorable however is "The Super Bowl Shuffle". This musical gem gave us unforgettable lyrics such as, "Well the call me Sweetness and I like to dance. Runnin' the ball is like makin' romance."
Have a great day.
