Blog: Luke's Lobster Opens
Well it didn’t take long for the suits and ties to pile into the just opened Luke’s Lobster in the Financial District. Just blocks away from Wall Street itself, and around the nook of the New York Stock Exchange and Goldman Sachs headquarters, comes the latest in extravagant seafood on-the-go. The fourth full store location opened this morning, and hordes of hungry lunchers have crowded a normally tame sidewalk, hoping for their first tastes.
With a dearth of notable lunch locations nearby, Luke’s immediately becomes one, if not the most distinguished. Specializing in fresh Maine-style rolls, the shrimp ($8), crab ($10), and their famous lobster ($15) are prepared cold, stuffed into a crispy, buttery bun, with a bit of mayo and a smatter of spice. The complete list of food offerings is available here, where they also have a variety of soups, crab claws, and booze. The menu itself, much like the space itself is relatively small, but like anything else in the FiDi, when supply dwindles, demand goes up. Check out this snapshot, taken early at today’s opening at lunchtime.
