Flanders Fish Market & Restaurant is a family story beginning in 1983. Paul Formica and his wife, Donna, drove past a little house on Chesterfield Road in what was then called Flanders, CT, and thought, “That could be a fresh fish market.” That December, with Donna & Paul expecting their first child, they opened the market with only $41 to their name, which they used in the register to make change.
Today, they drive their refrigerated trucks to the Boston Fish Pier, allowing them to provide their patrons with the freshest and most high-quality ingredients available. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu but we’d recommend the lobster burger, the crab cakes, and the stuffed trout. But again, EVERYTHING on their menu is DELICIOUS.
