'Frank Siragusa grew up right on the water in Sicily, catching, cleaning and selling fish. When he moved to the United States, he owned this shop on Central Avenue in Yonkers for 14 years between 1980 and 1994. Last year, he bought it back, and the shop reopened on December 3. In the gleaming white case packed with ice, he has between 25 to 30 fish on display, including tuna, flounder, sole, wild salmon, halibut and chilean sea bass. (He arranges the fish in a red-white-red-white color scheme so it's more attractive.) There are also shellfish, including scallops and Bee Gee shrimp, a brand Frank's daughter Johanna says is "the number one shrimp you can get." The shop is also known for its prepared foods, especially the Riviera Salad, which includes calamari, scungilli, and shrimp mixed with parsley, salt, pepper & extra virgin olive oil.
On Thursdays, the shop offers Paella, which comes with lobster, monkfish, and crab and is sold for $8 a pint. The Siragusas usually make the dish with chicken and sausage, but leave it out for people observing Lent. And for those observing Passover? The Siragusas grind their own blend of fish to make gefilte fish.'
