Browne Trading Co.
Rod Browne Mitchell’s seafood store and smokehouse has occupied a brick building in downtown since 1991. His company specializes in luxury items like caviar, fresh fish and shellfish, and smoked seafood. In two decades, Browne has forged bonds with local fishermen and high-profile chefs, allowing for products like Daniel Boulud smoked salmon, which they developed using the Manhattan-based chef’s recipe and smoke in-house. Depending on the season, the shop might have East Coast oysters like Winter Points, Pemaquids, and Wellfleets. Browne also sells mussels, clams, and tins of caviar, including roe from farm-raised California white sturgeon and freshwater Mississippi paddlefish.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
