For those featuring seafood prominently on their holiday menus, it would seem Quarterdeck Gourmet Seafood Market is heaven sent.

Carroll Gardens residents Lawrence Tramontano and his wife and business partner, Elizabeth, retail food veterans with 20 years of experience, opened their market on Bay Ridge’s Third Avenue in June.

"I noticed that there were only a few fish markets in the neighborhood," said Lawrence, "and none of them carried the selection of fish, soups and prepared seafood that I wanted to offer."

Since opening, he has risen in the early morning hours to haggle with fishmongers at the Fulton Fish Market in Manhattan, and his catch is housed in the 1,100-square-foot Quarterdeck, described by Tramontano as "sort of New England looking" with its wood-paneled walls and wooden rafters.

Shoppers are reeled in with the promise of 35 varieties of impeccably fresh fish - everything from wild Alaskan salmon, red snapper and Chilean sea bass - pounds of sparkling little neck clams, lobsters, Prince Edward Island mussels, thick lobster bisques, Cajun seafood gumbos and New England or Manhattan clam chowders.

Quarterdeck Gourmet Seafood Market (8618 Third Ave. at 86th Street) accepts Visa and MasterCard. The store is open Monday through Friday, 9 am to 7 pm, and Saturday, from 9 am to 6 pm. For further information, call (718) 836-0880 or visit their Web site at
