[Snacking by Wilfrid: October 14, 2009]
A new feature - quick posts about snacks around town, and I won't necessarily wait until the Monday edition of the Pig to publish them. Calories and carnage rushing down your RSS feed with no warning.
Luke's Lobster, East 7th Street, bringing lobster rolls at half the (market) price of established lobster shacks like Pearl, Mary's, and Ed's.
Now, is that because of the size? A quarter pound of lobster meat is what you get - no doubt about that. I offer a regular home remote control for comparison: I think the roll is smaller than the rolls to which we're accustomed. Less lobster though? A difficult one. Luke's would doubtless point to the fillers - celery, for example - which their roll lacks. There's a vanishing smear of mayo on the nicely toasted bun. I liked the lobster meat just fine. Look out, though, for the dusting of oregano salt. It comes that way - presumably you can ask them to hold it, and you should. Fourteen dollars.
