Sheslky's current location at 251 Smith Street and below
the new Sheslky's Of Brooklyn location at 141 Court StreetShelsky's Smoked Fish at 251 Smith Street, purveyor of the best smoked and pickled fish on this side of the Brooklyn Bridge, is moving from Smith Street to Court Street and getting a new name. Owner Peter Shelsky told me last week that he and his new partner Lewis Spada have signed a lease on Court Street and will be opening Shelsky's Of Brooklyn at 141 Court Street in the space formerly occupied by Mexicali, right across the street from Trader Joe's. The new store is being designed by architect Eric Safyan and should be ready for a mid-May opening. The much larger space will allow Shelsky and Spada to offer even more delicacies.
"We’re extremely excited to be able to offer a whole new array of different goodies. From local, pastured farm-fresh eggs, caviar, eastern european/russian food stuffs and snacks, British goodies, French goodies, more canned fish items from around the world and more. We will also be slowly introducing a small section with Falafel and other middle eastern goodies as a shout out to our Sephardic Brothers!"
It's great to see a local business thrive and expand. Lucky for us, Shelsky's of Brooklyn will only be a few blocks away from the original location. Wishing Peter and Lewis lots of luck.
