Luke's Lobster

93 E. Seventh St. New York, NY 10009 | East Village | 212-387-8487

Location Description:

For the money, this is one of the best lobster rolls in the city--four ounces of sweet, large chunks of lobster meat stuffed into a properly squishy, buttered and toasted hot dog bun.There are also perfectly delicious crab rolls, and shrimp rolls. Order yours with mayo or butter, a mix of the two, or no fat at all. Whatever dressing you choose, the only catch is that it needs to be better mixed with the meat to avoid a soggy-bun situation.
