Tranquil Court on Selwyn Adds Specialty Fish Market

Crosland has attracted a new retail concept to Tranquil Court on Selwyn. Clean Catch Fish Market will be joining the mixed-use development on Selwyn Avenue in Myers Park.

“We are excited to welcome Clean Catch Fish Market,” said Charles Thrift, senior leasing associate for Crosland’s retail division. “Charlotte residents have not had a specialty fish market in years, so we’re pleased to fill that niche and meet the pent-up demand.”

Clean Catch Fish Market is going to be a “European style,” high-end fish market specializing in responsibly fished and caught seafood. The market will offer fresh fish and seafood shoppers are typically unaccustomed to seeing in local grocery stores. The mission, in addition to emphasizing sustainable fishing practices, is to take the mystery out of seafood. The market will provide weekly tasting demonstrations and classes on how to prepare and cook the fish as well as how to pair with complementary wines.

In addition, a daily selection of specialty and prepared items such as fresh Ahi-tuna meatballs and wild salmon burgers will be available as well as seafood-friendly wine and beer and fresh, local organic produce. Ensuring a quality experience, Clean Catch will individually service each customer’s order from the cut of the fish to the ice placed in the bag guaranteeing the quality of the product sold on the trip home. Fish will be sourced from places such as the Carolina coast, California, Hawaii and New England.

“We want to teach people they don’t need to be afraid of fish,” said Bill Ryan, owner and partner of Clean Catch Fish Market. “With a great quality product, you don’t need to do a lot to it.”
Ryan and his partners developed their piscatorial passion while they were in the restaurant and wine business in Boston. He chose Tranquil Court because he recognized the neighborhood needed this type of market. The store is scheduled to open in mid-Summer 2010.

Most recently, Tranquil Court on Selwyn announced restaurant Mellow Mushroom was joining the development. They are expected to open in May.
