You have to eat and drink, right? And you don't eat boring food do you? So why eat and drink from boring plates, cups and glasses? Enter Fishes Eddy. Originally, I shopped here for old diner cups and plates - especially loved the ones with the long-forgotten names of closed eateries. Now I go back to see what kind of cool stuff they have that I can add to my "collection".
For instance, I just bought a metal airline knife and a metal coffee pot - the prices were stupidly cheap. Back when the Palace Hotel closed, I bought a Leona H. Palace tea pot (complete with gold leaf details) - again stupidly cheap.
All of our daily glasses are from Fishes Eddy too along with a lot of our heavy duty mugs.
This is a fun, NY institution. Go, have fun, and eat from something cool and fun.
