Food Information:

THE FISHERY - is a direct opportunity to receive imported Seafood from Mercado de Madrid. We have had over a decade of successes bringing to our chefs, the finest Mediterranean Seafood. Typically a one to two day turn around on valuable products that stand alone in Fine Dining.

THE PRAWN - Carabineros are "Parte superior del mundo". Top of the world!!! Carabineros reign supreme in Mediterranean Fine Dining. Red Shrimp boast a natural Lobster-Like Sweetness and a very Robust "Sea" Flavor. Revered for the almost absurd size the Carabinero is by far the largest Red Shrimp on the market. Culinary applications demand skill and respect of the product. Treat as a delicate small Lobster and it is a protein without reproach.
