A colleague mentioned a few times that a lobster roll is a must in NYC and that Luke’s Lobster Rolls are her choice. I kind of remember the last time I was in NYC having a lobster roll… but that it didn’t make much of an impression on me. Time to investigate again, I thought. This outlet of Luke’s Lobster Rolls is in a busy, buzzy food court in the Row hotel. A bit crazy really.
Aside from some delicious premium soda pop (ginger root beer for my better half, blueberry soda for me), we opted to split the special: a half sandwich each of shrimp, crab and lobster. It was a good decision that we got to try each of these kinds. The verdict? OMGDELICIOUS. This is simple, fresh, high-quality seafood, and reminds you of why lobster is a valued protein, and how delicious crab and shrimp are when you don’t have to shell them yourselves. With only a little bit of sauce and seasoning, and served in a lightly toasted, buttered, beautiful soft little bun, this was a great NYC experience.
