WHAT IS BRANZINO?

Branzino. Loup de mer. Lavraki. Róbalo. Lots of names for a singularly ideal fish.

Branzino is a silver-skinned fish native to the eastern Atlantic Ocean. With firm, white, and delicate-flavored flesh, it is prized in Italian, Spanish, and Greek cuisines, prepared grilled, roasted, poached, steamed, or braised whole.

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

From our waters to your kitchen within 24 hours of harvest.

Our beautiful Branzino are raised responsibly and sustainably by our experienced staff in recirculating aquaculture tanks at our ultra modern 63,000 square foot facility in Waterbury, Connecticut. We’re truly local—right in the middle of the New York, New England, and metro Atlantic markets we serve, ensuring the highest levels of freshness. Compare that to product that has been transported thousands of miles, processed by numerous parties, and pushed through a multi-layered distribution system over many days. No contest.
