Jim and John Catanese have been “fishmongers” for over thirty years. From day one at Chez François they have been our seafood suppliers. Located in the Flats in Downtown Cleveland the brothers connect restaurants, retailers and fish lovers across a tri-state region to seafood from around the globe. They also contract with local fishermen buying fresh Lake Erie catches.
In addition to the fresh Lake Erie catches, the brothers bring in dozens of types of seafood from around the world, with shipments flown in daily. From Australia (Barramundi), Canada (Mussles, Cod, Oysters and Smoked Fish), Greece (Bronzini), Norway (Salmon, Steelhead Trout and Wolf Fish), Mexico (Grouper) and South and Central America (Sea Bass, Mahi Mahi).
Domestically, Alaska (King Salmon, King Crab and Halibut), Louisiana (Crawfish, Tuna, Swordfish and Shrimp), The Carolinas (Shrimp), Florida Keys (Hog Snapper).
Maryland (Soft Shell Crab), Mid-Atlantic (Sea Bass), Boston (Lobster, Scallops, Sole , Cod) and from the Northeast and Northwest (Cold Water Oysters).
We have great faith that the Catanese brothers will continue to deliver the best quality and freshest seafood the world has to offer.
