WE ARE HONORED TO SERVE YOU PLUS NEW PROCEDURES...PLEASE SHARE

Good morning to all of our beloved friends and clients and as we go through this difficult time together, we cannot thank you enough for your support.

Honestly, the most difficult part of this terrible situation is that we cannot take care of all of you the way we so genuinely love to. So for anyone who was not able to place a curbside pick-up last week we offer our most humble apologies. You, our friends and clients mean the world to us and we will never forget how your kindness and patronage has allowed us to be your Fishmongers for the last 31 years.

Now to the Business at hand, there our some new procedures we have implemented in the hopes of delivering more excellent services and products while keeping us all safe and they are as follows.

Curbside Service is still available for all orders both FRESH FISH and TAKE-OUT, we just please ask for your patience while we gather your order and safely deliver it to your vehicle. Of course you can call in your order and we will give you a designated time frame in which to pick up your order. That said, we would love to tell you your order will be ready in 30 minutes or less but unfortunately we must schedule it for later in the day as we do butcher every piece of fish that is brought into Metro.

You may now order Fresh Seafood (Fresh Fish, Shrimp, Crab, Clams etc.) online with a minimum of 48 hours in advance.

Just Email us at lobsterman@metroseafood.com and please put ORDER in the subject line. Please include your full name, the day you would like to pick-up (curbside) along with your phone number so we may call you back to confirm your order. Please also include your credit card number, expiration date and security code.

Please see the body of this email or check our website for current fresh fish availability. Since we cannot get back to you immediately please call the store for all current pricing.

Regarding Take-Out (Hot, prepared meals from our specials and regular menu); Things have changed slightly, we please ask you to call earlier in the day and place your order. We will then let you know what is the next pick-up time. During our peak lunch and dinner hours we cannot always guarantee 30 minutes or less but I promise we will try.

We are still delivering (free of charge to those in our community who are at the greatest risk (the elderly as well as those with immune deficiencies). Please call at least 24 hours in advance so we can assist you better. Also, please know that our Curbside Service is completely safe and you never have to leave your car. Just pop the trunk and we will drop your order in.

Regarding phone calls; With only six phone lines it is not uncommon for all lines to be busy, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE YOUR NAME AND NUMBER ON THE ANSWERING SERVICE AND WE WILL CALL YOU EARLY THE NEXT DAY

Also along with our fresh fish offerings, we also carry fresh produce (Asparagus, French String Beans, Salad Mix, Potatoes, Onions, Carrots and so much more). Moreover, we have a full line of Rice, Imported pasta, olive oil and vinegars so please do not hesitate to ask for anything at all as we would love to save you another trip to the store. Seriously just ask, if we have it, you'll have it.

And lastly, We know that along with the obvious health issues some of you might be finding yourself in severe financial crisis, due to layoffs during this time. Please do not hesitate to call the store or direct message us on Facebook or Instagram so we may provide a hot meal, free of charge, to those in need. This will be practiced with the utmost discretion maintaining complete privacy to all of those involved. You have plenty to worry about but we will have no one in our community go hungry tonight.

Of course this week begins the Passover and Easter holidays and I promise we would like to make them as special for you as we can.

For one, Metro will be making our Gefilte Fish again this year but limited quantities so please feel free to call and reserve yours in advance. Regarding Easter, we of course will not have Lamb or Ham but we will have Shrimp Cocktail, Sushi, Crab Claws, Clams Casino, Scallops Wrapped in Bacon, Oyster Rockefeller, Smoked Salmon, Smoked Fish and so very much more... please call and let one of our Seafood Specialists help you plan your menu. And finally for all of you who have been the Little Chefs during this quarantine, we applaud you and promise that, once this is over we will hug you and throw in a slightly inappropriate back rub, free of charge. Now for those who still feel the need to feed, I sincerely hope you will enjoy today's original recipes featuring Pa
