Lisa Feinman, Owner of CT Seafood Market Atlantic Seafood
Lisa Feinman has been the owner of Atlantic Seafood Market for more than a decade. Her greatest interest, of course, lies in ensuring that Atlantic Seafood provides the best seafood in Connecticut each and every day. However, she also enjoys scouting other fish markets, searching for new recipes, and finding new and innovative equipment.
“Owning a fresh seafood market has given me a sense of purpose in the community. Seafood is a delicious part of a health-promoting diet. It gives me a great sense of pride to offer the best the seafood industry has to offer.”
Lisa also loves supporting charities and local venues.
Jerry Doran, Chef
Atlantic Seafood’s own gourmet seafood chef Jerry has worked in high-volume, 5-star restaurants for more than 25 years, including the Four Seasons in Boston, the La Cremaillere in Pound Ridge, New York, and the Meeting House in Bedford Village, New York.
Jerry’s style is “Less is more,” and his favorite line is “Don’t over think it.” He has an ability to combine flavors that compliment each other without masking.
Jerry has a true passion for creative gourmet cooking and it shows in all of his unique seafood creations. When he’s not busy preparing the best seafood in Connecticut, he enjoys engaging in his other passion, playing bluegrass banjo.
