Seafood Markets in Kansas City

sirregular | Jan 26, 200811:55 AM     22

I am often looking to purchase good seafood in Kansas City, but more often than not, I'm stuck with Whole Foods Market, who invariably thaws out frozen fish and leaves it sit all day, then charges a 200% mark-up, calling it "fresh", or braving the stench of the "Seafood Counter" at any of the chain grocery stores.

Other than the Asian marketplaces, where the origin, health, and containing facilities are of question, are there any good places in KC to buy something other than Catfish, Cod, Tilapia, and the occasional Orange Roughy? Frozen is fine...in fact, it's better than fine, since the fish had darned-well better have been frozen for its trip to Kansas City in the first place, and I'm perfectly capable of thawing it at my leisure.

I'd like to find some Patagonian Toothfish (Chilean Sea Bass), or some Grey Mullet, but the closest thing I've found to Grey Mullet in KC happens to be perched atop Jack Harry's head.
