Citarella’s Seafood for Summer


For the first time ever, Citarella has launched a series of custom seafood boxes just in time for summer. The boxes offer a variety of seafood hits like lobster rolls, tuna steaks, owner and fishmonger Joe Gurrera’s popular ceviche, sea scallops and more streamlined into themed kits for easy hosting. Gurrera has made it his life’s mission to demystify any misconceptions that cooking seafood needs to be challenging, and with these custom boxes he created, he will get to reinforce his many teachings and tricks.

The boxes can be purchased online at for national delivery, in-store pick-up, or local delivery for parties ranging in size from two to six people.

Boxes include lobster roll for two ($49), lobster roll kit for six ($149), “Seafood Summer Essentials” for two to four people with mussels, shrimp, sea scallops, Norwegian salmon fillets plus skewers and cedar planks ($129) and the “Seafood Grilling Party” for four to six people with lobster tails, salmon, shrimp, tuna steaks and ceviche and skewers and cedar planks ($199).

National orders placed by 4 p.m. will be delivered within two days. To pick-up locally, place orders by 4 p.m. to get it the next day.
