Shelsky's Of Brooklyn
Posted by L Port on 11/15/2014
Shelsky's in theory could be a good addition to the neighborhood, as it would be great to not have to go to fairway to get my weekly smoked salmon. But... The first time I went, I came home and half of my sliced salmon was brown and there was hard parts on it. The next few times I asked if they could trim (like at Fairway) and yet every time, I come home and there is brown, fishy edges (even though they cut a little out) and I have to spend my time cleaning it up. I also find that if I ask for half a pound, I get closer to 3/4, or 1/4, I get a third. Going to Fairway is worth the trip- where you get consistently pristine, professionally sliced salmon. Ps. Always get a receipt because 2 times I was overcharged!

The food is good. So glad to have a smoked fish shop this good in Carroll Gardens.

Great variety of high-quality smoked fish and other traditional Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine. The bagels are delicious, but not baked in-house, so on Saturdays they have been frozen from the day before. They slice fish to-order which is classy, but painstaking, so if you're looking for a quick in-and-out bagel you'll be disappointed. If you're new to appetizing (the dairy flip-side of delicatessen), they are very happy to guide.
