A century-long family history in fishmongering is, oddly, not why entertainment lawyer Vincent Milburn built this north Brooklyn seafoodery. After music-industry pal Adam Geringer-Dunn noticed a plethora of butchers but zero fish shops in the nabe, the pair began hosting pop-up lobster bakes. Now they’ve ventured into purveying, sourcing only seasonal and sustainable—and sometimes local—catch like wild Alaskan salmon and Arctic char at a retail counter. They put the fresh goods to use in dishes like lobster rolls, kelp-noodle pad Thai and Baja-style fish tacos dressed with citrus-cabbage slaw and chipotle-lime mayo, doled out in a tiled space outfitted with marble counters and high-top tables. Beers also keep to the coast: Captain Lawrence Kölsch and Cisco Brewers Grey Lady are both on tap, along with Gotham Project rosé.

The best seafood in North Brooklyn! Everything my friend and I had was amazing. The best lobster roll I've had in NYC (and I've had *a lot* of lobster rolls.) Owner is also super friendly which is always a plus!
Thanks to a help of my roommate, I paid a little visit to Greenpoint, Brooklyn to check out Greenpoint Fish and Lobster Co on Sunday for brunch. I've heard some good things about this place so I decided to check it out myself. I was definitely happy and impressed with tons of seafood options I had. If you are looking for a place to go with groups of friends, this is not the best place. Its a small nice intimate location I would say is good for a party of 2-4 people.
Food option wise any type of seafood you can think of, they have it and the best part is its all Fresh! I decided to go with the biscuits as a starter before ordering the Grilled Shrimp Mofongo. The biscuits were amazing and the butter were "OMG" good. It has a sugary taste to it but it compliments the biscuits just perfectly. The Grilled Shrimp Mofongo is the perfect dish you could ask for. (side note: Mofongos are fried plantains). Its served in a large bowl with wild-caught Gulf shrimp over fried plantains smashed with garlic confit and topped with poached eggs, finished with crema, chipotle mayo, avocado and cilantro. What else could you ask for. If you are big in flavor like I am, I would add just a tad bit of salt to the plantains for some additional taste. The combination of all the flavors come together very well and I promise you, you won't be disappointed with choice.
Overall I really enjoyed myself for brunch and I must say I definitely will visit Greenpoint Fish and Lobster Co. again to explore more of their brunch/dinner options.
