Think the free samples at the Brooklyn Brewery tours are cool? Fork in the Road discovers that Acme Smoked Fish — the Greenpoint institution that provides smoked salmon, sablefish, tuna, whole chub, and whitefish to Russ & Daughters and Zabar’s — sells its product at wholesale prices (as in, $18 for about three fourths of a pound) every Friday, between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Not that most people can make it out to the industrial wilds of Greenpoint during those hours, but it’s good to know that the temple doors are sometimes open.
