Eater.com: Steven Wong, New York's Lobster King, sources the highest quality lobster for some of NYC’s best restaurants at his family-run business [ Eater video]

excerjpt:

“Selling lobsters is definitely a complicated process,” says Steven Wong, owner of Aqua Best Seafood Market in New York City. “I’ve eaten so much lobster in my life I can actually taste the difference in where they caught it.” Wong and his family have been selling and shipping diverse seafood to customers, many of whom are restaurateurs for some of NYC’s best restaurants, for over 30 years. In that time, Wong has become known for his sourcing of high-grade lobster, so much so that he earned the nickname “the lobster ‘sourcerer’”

Aquabest! I love that place. I can’t wait 'til they can re-open their Essex Market satellite store.
