Luke is my new favourite friend in the neighbourhood, or at least his lobster rolls are. It was the littlest, but tastiest lobster roll I've ever had! Which isn't saying a lot since I'm no lobster roll connoisseur and have certainly never been to Maine. However I did have a friend with me who is from Maine and he confirmed it was very GOOD. This little gem popped up about a month ago at most, right smack in the middle of the two Caracas restos (one of my favourite restaurants in the east village =) This block, which was always amazing has come a long way this year with the addition of Kyo-ya, Porchetta, and now Luke's! I might have to narrow my apartment search to this block! The lobster roll comes in two sizes, regular ($14) and snack size ($8, pictured here). It's not cheap but I guess lobster rolls never are. Although the bread was tiny, they did load on a lot of meat! The meat was fresh and had an awesome citrus taste to it! I was definitely satisfied after one.. it was the perfect snack! And always love me a good ginger beer... spicy and fair trade!
