Blog: National Lobster Day - Lukes Lobster
When out-of-towners pose the question- ‘Where should we go to grab a great lobster roll in Manhattan?’- there’s only one right answer: Luke’s Lobster, of course. Since 2009, the seafood outlet that began as a small East Village outpost has been rapidly expanding its brand of sustainably sourced Maine-based seafood into major cities around the country. With locations now in Las Vegas, Chicago, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, Washington D.C. and Boston, plus one in seemingly every neighborhood of New York City, the Luke’s Lobster franchise seems poised to introduce the gluttonous luxury of succulent lobster to even the most casual of eaters.
In celebration of National Lobster Day- which should be recognized as a national holiday in our estimation- all Luke’s Lobster locations are showcasing an unbeatable deal for its patrons. On Sunday, September 25th, diners are invited to indulge in the Luke’s #LobstahLobstahLobstah special where just $25 gets you a signature Luke’s Lobster Roll, a bowl of rich Lobster Bisque and a Lobster Tail Skewer.
Decadently dipped in a small container of drawn butter, the hunk of lobster meat on a skewer is but a precursor to the roll itself- lathered in mayonnaise, drizzled in lemon butter and delivered enveloped in a buttery, toasted split top bun. Served Maine-style, the seafood at Luke’s is chilled- and candidly, the Lobster Roll is so mouthwatering that eating just one probably won’t do. Fortunately the thick and hearty Bisque is both complex and flavorful, delivering chunks of pulled meat in each spoonful of tasty broth.
Our photo gallery above was shot on site at the Midtown East location- but the pictures can hardly do a visit to Luke’s Lobster much justice. Head on out to any Luke’s location on Sunday, 9/25 and dig into some of New York’s finest and most reasonably priced seafood for yourself. It is a holiday, after all.
