Added in my list of best UES places to eat!
It’s not a typical UES place, it actually looks more like a Bklyn or LES place, I think i can say it’s the best lobster roll in New York. A friend introduced me to Luke’s Lobsters, it’s a small place on 81st street and 2nd Avenue launched by a guy obviously called Luke, :). He opened his business when still in high school and he buys 100% of his lobsters in Maine.
The lobster roll tastes fresh and pure, no fatty sauces on top, served in a griddled New England split-top bun, with no filler. Since they taste so fresh, i made a little research on its website and was also happy to find out that they come only from Maine’s sustainable fishery, well known for their strict fishing regulations, and not from exhausted and polluted fisheries. The lobsters are picked up at the harbor, sealed and delivered straight to Lukes places in New York.

Tonight i had dinner there, enjoyed my roll, a Maine root soda and my book joined me for the little feast!
