Main Line Seafood, a new market accompanied by a fast-casual eatery, has officially opened its doors in Paoli, writes Caroline O’Halloran for SAVVY Main Line.
Located in the old Van Cleve bridal boutique, the seafood store was started by Alan Chung, Sean Sim, and Mike Casselli, They are former owners of Seafood USA at the Paoli train station. The new location doubled the size of the former market, which went hand in hand with the doubling of their business during the pandemic.
The new eatery lets customers choose the fish they want to eat and how it will be prepared. Then, patrons either wait at available tables or take orders home.
In addition to fish, Main Line Seafood serves homemade soups, slaws, raw bar items, lobster rolls, and Hawaiian-style poke bowls.
Plans for the future include all-you-can-eat crab and lobster nights.
For the owners, freshness is everything. They personally pick up their seafood from Philadelphia’s waterfront fishmongers.
The partners work hard on keeping the prices lower than their competition. And while they cannot match the deals at Acme and similar supermarkets, their quality and freshness cannot compare, said Sim.
