If you haven't finished your Holiday seafood shopping, two iconic stores in Belmont have you covered. 
 
Italian Americans are getting ready to celebrate "The Feast of the Seven Fishes" on Christmas Eve. It's a seafood spread with everything from shrimp to more than seven types of fish. People from all across the boroughs lined up at both Randazzo's and Cosenza's to get their last-minute seafood. 
 
"We always come down here, it's tradition before Christmas, to get food and everything for the holidays," said Kristen Cignarella, of White Plains. 
 
Arthur Avenue has been home to Randazzo's and Cosenza's for over 100 years, and nothing has stopped their customers from coming back for the holidays each year. 
 
"This is the best fish store in the area," said Pasquale Carbone, who traveled from Westchester to get his fish. "It's clean, they have great deals, and I know the owner." 
 
Both fish markets will be open on Christmas Eve.
