Looking for a GOOD seafood market

cfoodie | Aug 20, 2008 08:09 PM

I just moved from Cleveland, and am looking for a good seafood market(s) that would be comparable to the ones I had in the midwest. (Thought should be easy to find?)

I am looking for a market where I can find dry scallops, wild (fresh) salmon, raw oysters, an ocassional assortment of stuff like halibut cheeks, sable/black cod, Hawaiian sushi grade tuna, Nantucket bay scallops, maybe fresh king crab legs, along with a good selection of other wild fillets and maybe live lobsters for reasonable price... Are there live shrimps in the tank to be found here?

I've been down to the waterfront in DC and like the live crabs there but not too excited about the drive and fish in plastic wraps under the sunlight. Been to Camrons in silver springs and A&H in Bethesda. So far, whole foods came the closest to mind. I am quite willing to travel and spend for quality. If you can suggest markets where I can find the above, I would appreciate your tips. Thank you.
