Shipwreck Seafood Boutique
This seafood market on the corner of Bedford and Greene is one of our favorite places to stop by for a quick solo meal, especially in the summer. It’s a beloved neighborhood staple for its reasonably priced raw fish (including sushi grade tuna and raw shellfish) as well as the fried fish, lobster rolls, and po’boys from the back kitchen. There are only a couple bar seats inside, but when the weather’s good, you’ll see a steady crowd of people eating at the picnic tables out front. Whatever you get—we usually go for fried shrimp and lobster rolls—get a side of their Old Bay-dusted fries. They also have a tiny takeout operation on Throop called the Wreck with a handful of tables and stools outside.
