Signs went up recently in the former Park Slope Veterinary Care office at 413 5th Avenue, between 7th and 8th Streets, announcing that Ocean Fish Market will be opening soon. Fans of the Ocean Fish Market at 203 7th Avenue, on the corner of 3rd Street, will be happy to know that the fish monger/sushi space will be moving into this new spot.
We first learned in January that their 7th Avenue storefront, along with the adjacent former dry cleaners, was for rent, and today the owner confirmed that they’ll be out of that space in June. The new 5th Avenue location still needs some work before they can move in, though, and they’re hoping it will be up and running by July.
Though there are some other options for sushi on 5th (and, of course, there are also several on 7th), a fish market seems like a welcome addition to the avenue — agree, or disagree?
