Luke's Lobster

Imagine you're walking the streets of NYC. Everything is busy as hell, everyone's rushing around you, sirens blasting in your ears, the sun beaming on your neck, sweat dripping down your face, and all you want to do is sit down and eat a fucking sandwich. Not any sandwich, though. You're not about to walk into one of these 7-11 style convenience stores disguised as a "deli." Then, right when you're about to give up, a sign appears before you with an old lifesaver and rope hanging around it like it belongs on a dock in Maine. "LUKE'S LOBSTER," it reads.

You walk in and the sweet aroma of lobster fills your nose. Old fisherman decor is scattered around the place and some good, chill indie rock that you've never heard before plays softly from the kitchen. The menu only has a couple of things, but the main dish is obviously the Lobster Roll. It's listed at a cool $15.00. I know, I know. You're thinking "15 bucks!? That's fucking crazy, man. No way any sandwich is worth that much." Well, I'm here to tell you that you're wrong. Dead wrong.

This sandwich is  5-6 inches of happiness (And yes, ladies. 5-6 inches can make you happy, too). It's a warm, fresh, toasty, buttery bun, filled to the brim with premium, [carefully] hand pulled chunks of lobster (it's not rare to see a full claw) drizzled and sprinkled with their "special sauce and spices." This sandwich is the mecca of all lobster rolls, so next time you're in NYC make SURE you get to Luke's Lobster.

Here's a picture for your drooling pleasure....


  1. If you’re sandwich-shy and more polite than us, cut it in half first. Either way, we hope more chicken mole, refried beans and tomatillo salsa end up in your belly than on your lap.
