BEST. Lobster Roll. in NYC. Hands-Down. Don’t waste your time ordering lobster rolls at the pricy, fancy seafood restaurants. A cute Maine-er named Luke opened this seafood shack and saved the lives of all lobster lovers in the city. The GENEROUS portioned, non-drenched mayo rolls have a sprinkle of lemon butter and a dash of spices. It’s all you could ask for in a lobster roll and wins the way to my heart…Plus every visitor I’ve shared this gem with, still dreams of these rolls and some have made a point to go twice in one weekend. Makes going all the way to Boston/Maine for lobster over-rated and plain unnecessary (unless you are going to Neptune Oyster in Boston). Thank you, Luke!
