If you want the freshest fish possible, look no further. F. Rozzo & Sons, a fourth generation fresh fish and seafood wholesaler that distributes to hundreds of Manhattan restaurants and markets, is for the first time shipping direct to food lovers across the U.S. That means you can get the same gorgeous, top-quality tuna, salmon and red snapper served at Daniel, Le Bernardin, Nobu, Momofuku, and scores of other top restaurants. The best part? They procure, filet and ship the same day, so you can order today and get delivered tomorrow seafood far more fresh than anything you can find through even top local seafood purveyors.

About The Food

Nobody has fresher fish. F. Rozzo & Sons has spent a century developing relationships with the top fishermen along the East Coast and around the world to provide their clients with seafood so superiorly fresh and delicious, it’s the choice of every single top restaurant in New York City. Now, for the first time we’re helping bring that top-quality seafood straight to your door so you can enjoy cuts of tuna, snapper, and sea bass as well as lobsters, scallops and other delicacies that are usually reserved for America’s top restaurants. Better still, their fishmongers filet and ship fresh seafood the day you order it, making this as close as you can get to fresh-caught fish without heading out on a boat with a rod.

Meet The Owner

What keeps a company strong after 100 years in business despite growing competition? For F. Rozzo & Sons, the answer is Louis Rozzo, the fourth generation son of the family business who runs the company with an old-fashioned work ethic that demands 12 to 14 hour days, including Saturdays. Founded by Felix Rozzo, his great grandfather who left his native Naples for America in 1895, the company was built on the hard work of Felix and his wife, Nanciadio, who started buying fish at the market, carefully gutting, scaling, and filleting it and selling it from a roadside cart. Upon Felix's retirement, two generations of Rozzos—Louis Sr. and Felix Jr.—further built the business, cementing its reputation for excellent quality seafood (including hard-to-get imports), unparalleled work ethics, and outstanding customer service within the restaurant community. Since 1990, Louis Rozzo has maintained the tradition and high standards of his family business, which is located in the same Chelsea building his grandfather moved into in 1924.
