Wegmans -- trust but verify

johnb | May 24, 2004 09:26 AM

It is with a heavy heart that I must report I stopped at the fish counter on Saturday and pondered buying a whole red snapper (there was but one left). It was Wegmans after all, whom I generally trust, but I checked the fish anyway and discovered it was a silk, not a red, snapper, tho the sign clearly said red snapper. Upon being informed, the manager was highly apologetic, but still.......this is Wegmans, not Maine Ave (where probably 99.9% of the "red" snapper is actually silk and other varities).

That said, SO and I wanted fish and it was late so we opted for a piece of (not cheap) swordfish, which I grilled, and I must say it was superb, one of the best pieces of fish I've had lately at home or out.
