If you’re like us – constantly on the lookout for great lobster rolls and getting disappointed more times than not – and also happen to pass through Brooklyn in the next weeks, you’re in for a treat. Greenpoint Fish & Lobster Co. is here, a small fish market and restaurant in Greenpoint, and it’s worth a visit.

Lucky locals go here to shop for fresh, sustainably sourced seafood that is delivered daily to the retail fish market. And everybody else comes for the small dine-in restaurant and raw bar. On the menu: everything straight out of the ocean. Perfectly prepared oysters, fish tacos and chowder, for example. And lobster rolls, of course. They come with a bit of mayo, minced celery, tarragon and lemon juice, served on a buttery bun that is just right.
