I’m extremely confused as to how I’ve missed the amazingness that is Luke’s Lobster but extremely pleased that it is finally in my life. I swung by the upper east side location in NYC and grabbed the combo which included a pickle, lobster roll and chips. I decided to add a Mexican cola to my meal which was super sweet but tasty.
I wasn’t sure what to expect because I then realized that I never had a lobster roll before. Seriously, where have I been? My first thought when the roll reached was, this is small, accompanied by a serious side eye. I was fooled because it was jam packed with fresh, vibrant lobster and I found that out soon enough. The most amazing thing about this lobster roll which also intrigued me the most, was the bread. Not only was it oddly shaped, unlike a hero but more like a man made lobster holder – for real, they made the perfect lobster holder bread. Where do you guys find this stuff? But the bread was for sure toasted and lathered with butter that made it’s presence known with each bite. Even through the hearty lobster, which was very cold compared to the bread, the butter just popped out like it was the perfect amount of love. This is what I mean when I say this is where you can find love on the menu, because Luke’s Lobster – that’s love.
