Barney Greengrass is awesome

Okay, I'm a newb to Barney Greengrass so this probably isn't big news to others but I had to throw in my rave.

I was hosting family for New Year's Eve and to augment other food I decided to pony up for some appetizing from BG. I thought I knew what I wanted and how much I wanted but upon calling to place my order the person I spoke to offered some great advice and suggested instead of less variety with smaller amounts (my plan) I should concentrate on a few fish and have greater amounts of each, essentially the same overall weights. Additionally he advised on salads and such. Well, let me tell you, the amount and variety was perfect and everyone was very pleased with the choices. The actual fish was out of this World, Eastern salmon and the most incredible Sturgeon I've ever tasted (no wonder BG is the Sturgeon King). Whitefish salad and Herring salad was great as well. The egg salad for the vegetarians was very well received.

The service over the phone couldn't have been nicer and when I showed up the order was ready to go and nicely packaged for safe and easy transport.

Great bunch of people working at BG and I can't wait for the next "excuse" to visit.
