Carl Fantasia was one of our first "heroes" and continues to be one of our favorites. He is a third generation fishmonger and he could write a book on everything you could possibly want to know about fish and shellfish. Every time we talk to him, we learn something new. Once you meet a fishmonger of Carl's caliber, you will never want to buy your seafood anywhere else. Visit Carl at New Deal Fish Market in Cambridge and tell him how2heroes sent you!
