The Block Island Seafood Company (BISCo.) was started in 2007. I was waiting tables and bartending at The Lobster Inn in Southampton, NY and started doing some catering on my own when I was invited to do a cooking demonstration at the Hampton Bays library. Never having done one before, I immediately said,"Yes!"
Now I needed a name for my business. I had been writing a script about a guy who worked at a fictitious fish store called the Block Island Seafood Company and it just seemed to flow. I never did finish the script, but the name stuck.
In 1993 my family started an annual pilgrimage to Block Island, RI that hasn't stopped. Three different families under one roof and we never had so much fun. I learned so much about cooking and having fun on Block Island that not having it as part of the company name just wouldn't feel right.
Great food, laughs and family-time make our vacation a must-do for me every year. My goal, along with the great crew of people who wear the BISCo. Blue, is to bring you a slice of the fun and a big taste of the food we've enjoyed on our many trips to The Block.
Thanks for your interest.
