New Deal, Court House, other?

Hey folks. I'm trying to find a reliable and good fish market. I can't eat shellfish (allergic), but I do like to try to eat haddock, cod, sole, halibut or milder white fish once a week. I have tried New Deal Fish Market and really liked their fish. I have also tried Court House which was good. I went to a fish vendor at a local Farmers' Market and I normally have gotten good fish there, but the last time, I had bought a piece of hake. When I cooked it up, it tasted like ammonia. I threw it out and had researched and found that it probably was not fresh (it didn't appear spoiled nor did it smell that way, but the taste was definitely ammonia-like). I haven't been very keen on going back to that vendor. I have been told about Cyndi the Fish Lady at the Brookline Market. I got on her mailing list so I will try her out. In your opinion, where do you think the best quality fresh fish in the Boston/Cambridge area can be found? Are my best bets to stick w/ New Deal and Court House or are there other places I may not be aware of that offer good fresh fish? I figured it'd be good to try a few places and then decide who to use as my primary fish market. Thanks for your help.
