Where to buy lentils du puy in Brooklyn.

I'd normally run to Fairway Red Hook but they're closed due to Sandy.
Please advise.
My lamb shanks feel lonely.
Thanks!

Octopus as a main course.

Try Ortobello in Brooklyn on the corner of Bay Parkway and 64th St.
Served in a marinara sauce it's excellent.
Just make sure you call ahead to confirm they have it that day.

Wholesale Fish Markets in Brooklyn?

Expanding the question a little bit, who can comment about buying fish at the piers in Sheephead Bay?

where to buy good fresh pizza dough in brooklyn

A recent Di Fara's post motivated me to finally pull that pizza stone gift out of my closet to give it a try in the oven. While I no doubt want to make my own dough in the future, my wife suggested I buy some good quality pizza dough for my first few runs. Any suggestions? I'm along Ocean Parkway one mile below Church Ave but travel easily.
Thanks!

Di Fara- Recent TERRIBLE Crust

Excuse me if this has come up recently, but I shared a pie with friends Friday and the crust was completely dried out like cardboard, flat, no chew to it, flavorless. I've lived ten blocks from Dom for over 20 years and have been going to his place for at least the last fifteen. Even the color didn't look right; it had a yellow tint. No good.
