www.lobsterbarnyc.com Two locations 222 Lafeyette St, NYC & 25 Clinton St, NYC
Hello is it summer in the city (^_^) in February? This place brings the feel of New England / Long Island fish shack right to Soho. It’s the middle of winter and I’m imagining wearing a summer sundress & flip flops with the bright light, white walls & marble counter and open raw bar kitchen. Though the place is small with a dining room in back, the best location is the counter so make sure to grab a good seat. Order a chilled Sauvignon Blanc and watch the guy crack open the lobsters and oysters. This place is famous for its lobster roll ($27 market price) & raw bar but I didn’t order any of that as I want to try something new. I started with the crab & artichoke dip (great but Freeman’s artichoke dip places the bar high) and enjoyed their tuna tartar with sea salted zucchini tempura. The skate, the fresh fish of the day, was a great choice simply seasoned and seared in olive oil & butter. P.S. Who’s Ed? Owner/chef Ed McFarland worked at Pearl Oyster Bar, which I adore for 6 years before opening his own place. Make sense!!
ps Ed’s Lobster bar now has 3 location in city of New York. I can’t wait to patrol neweast Lower East Side location.
