POSITIVE MESSAGING FROM FISHERMAN’S WHARF GLOUCESTER – AND CHECK OUT TODAY’S MENU!

Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester🐟🦞🇺🇸 Check Out today’s Menu!

A wide offering of high quality, wild caught, sustainable seafood at great prices!

On a side note I cant really hold back sorry, with all that’s going on in the world try and remain positive, try to get more fresh air, eat more fresh food, be supportive to anyone you come in contact with. We are only on this earth for a short period of time so why be negative. Lets bring each others spirits up. Accept others opinions, be open minded if you can. You all have made an impact already on the fishing industry by supporting it the way you have. It happened over night, you chose to buy local instead of imports you chose to support your local business and we hired more great people. You chose to smile when you see us and we smiled back. We have the power to change our surroundings but we are stronger together. Ok enough jibber jabber, have a great day everyone!

LENNY LINQUATA AT THE BLUE COLLAR LOBSTER CO. IS DOING AN EXTRAORDINARY JOB UNDER COVID PANDEMIC CIRCUMSTANCES – SEE NEW MENU!

Yesterday morning while filming on the waterfront, activity at the Blue Collar Lobster Co. caught my attention and I stopped by to see what was happening. Two words –

S-I-M-P-L-Y A-M-A-Z-I-N-G

The entire front of the house has been enclosed in glass, with a to-go window, which allows for safe food preparation and service. The restaurant is being kept super clean (the steam cleaning man was just finishing up when I stopped by) and everyone is wearing masks.

Don’t you love the “clean pens” and “dirty pens” idea?!

Lenny shares that for the next phase of restaurant openings, June 8th I believe, the outdoor bar and dining area is organized with six foot spacing for super safe dining.

Blue Collar Lobster Co. is now serving lobsters, fresh fried seafood, sandwiches, chowder, cornbread, shrimp, salads, fish tacos, and more . Additionally you can purchase fresh off the boat seafood at wholesale prices including lobsters, haddock, and STEAMERS FOR ONLYY FIVE DOLLARS PER POUND!

Our fabulous steamers from the Blue Collar Lobster Co. No broken or undersized clams– every clam was perfect and delicious! 

It is always so fun and picturesque at the Blue Collar Lobster Co. I plan to stop by on a sunnier afternoon or early evening when the cafe lights are on to take more photos.

Blue Collar Lobster Co. is open SEVEN DAYS A WEEK, 11:30am to 8:30pm

SO EXCITED THAT FISHERMAN’S WHARF GLOUCESTER HAS ADDED GREY SOLE FLOUNDER TO THEIR CURBSIDE PICK UP!!

One of my family’s favorite fishes is Grey Sole Flounder and we cook in the simplest way.

Rinse the filets, slightly pat dry and dip in flour, with salt and pepper to taste. Sautee in a hot skillet in butter (never substitute butter for oil*) that has almost turned brown. Cook for several minutes on either side. While preparing the fish, turn a  second skillet on very low and melt butter with thinly sliced almonds and a pinch of salt. Cook slowly until slightly browned.

Remove fish from pan, slather with toasted almonds slices and serve with lemon wedge. This is the classic French dish Sole Amandine, which I learned to cook when I worked in French kitchens on Newbury Street, back in the day 🙂

*I’ve tried substituting oil for butter, and many combinations of, and it just does not get that beautiful delicate brown crusty flavor.

From Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester – We have a new addition to our menu this week, Grey Sole Flounder. The F/V Midnight Sun captained by Tommy Testaverde jr. and crew fought through some pretty rough weather to make these available for us. This Fisherman’s Wharf favorite will be ready for pickup by 12pm today.

Grey Sole Fillets in 2 lb bags
$20 / bag (only $10 /lb.)

Also on the menu….

Day Boat Scallops in 1 lb. containers $15 /lb.

FISH CHOWDER MADE FROM GLOUCESTER FISHERMAN’S WHARF CURBSIDE PICKUP HADDOCK!

This morning I stopped at Gloucester Fisherman’s Wharf to take a photo. Nick made it so easy to order, I purchased 2 pounds of haddock and a container of scallops for dinner tonight. Both products are wonderfully fresh, not even the tiniest whiff of that off odor.

A pound of frozen and thawed clam chunks will be added tonight when finishing off with the cream, milk, and haddock

Quarantining with the family and loving all the cooking – the recipe is my family’s favorite chowder (including two year old Charlotte’s) – Julia Child The Way to Cook.

DUCKWORTH’S GIFT CARDS- HERE’S AN EXAMPLE OF A WAY TO HELP OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES

Many share our worries in regard to local small businesses. Our restaurants and the friends who work in these establishments, downtown Main Street retail shops, Cape Ann’s fishermen and lobstermen, the nonprofits that serve our community, artists, writers, photographers, musicians, designers, the list goes on and on. We are all going to be hit hard by this devastating turn of events.

One way in which we can help each other stay afloat is to buy gift cards. It may sound inconsequential, but every purchase will help. Our friends at Duckworth’s have a link to purchase gift cards and it is a great example of one small way we can help. Duckworth’s Gift Cards

Any local business that wants to communicate with their customers and the public about special offerings during these extremely challenging times please feel free to email me (kimsmithdesigns@hotmail.com) or email any of our contributors and we will post here. Thank you!

SHORT AND MAIN COVID-19 UPDATE

Dear Short & Main customers,

Obviously things are moving pretty fast.  Before Governor Baker’s announcement we had decided to close our dining room and switch to takeout service only.  We are ready to continue serving you in a safe and responsible way.

Place your order over the phone with a credit card and we will deliver to your car on Short Street.  No cash, no signatures, no door handles.
We are of the belief that we can’t be too cautious or too clean.  It’s for that reason that we will not be doing delivery at this time as it adds an extra link in the chain that we’re unable to control.  We hope that you trust us to be diligent and mindful during this time. That trust feels personal to us and we’d like to keep it at all costs.

We will be opening an hour early; 4pm to 9pm for now.

Our public events are obviously canceled but we will still be serving burgers and fried chicken on the first and last Wednesdays of the month.  You can pre-order via phone or email if you’re worried about our popular specials running out.

Let’s FLATTEN THE CURVE together!

-sincerely Short & Main
