Where can I buy fresh fish and seafood in Moscow?

La Maree, a new Mediterranean restaurant, opened a boutique last week (tel. 773-1000) that offers a wide variety of fish and seafood. The boutique is in the same spot as the restaurant, at 28/2 Ulitsa Petrovka, but has a separate entrance on Strastnoi Bulvar.

Mehdi Douss, the president of La Maree fish and seafood supply company and co-owner of the restaurant, said the prices are in the upper-middle range, but still are "a little bit lower than those in Sedmoi Kontinent."

Douss said the fish are flown in daily. They include artificially and naturally bred sea bass between 15 euros and 40 euros ($19-$50) per kilogram, Scottish salmon (19 euros), royal rock lobsters (200 euros), swordfish (45 euros) and oysters (2-4 euros each).

New Wave (tel. 250-7160) does wholesale orders for restaurants, but can also provide smaller orders for individuals, said director Stephane Berthon. A customer should make an order two days in advance, though, he said. Oyster-lovers will appreciate produce from France's Britanny and Marennes-Oleron for up to 2.60 euros ($3.40) apiece. Blue shark, barracuda, cuttlefish and mackerel are also on the list.

Moscow's six Metro Cash and Carry stores (metro-cc.ru) carry high-quality fresh fish and seafood. Produce is delivered from countries ranging from Norway to Thailand three times a week and includes 600 varieties, such as shark, tuna and dorado.
