The renovated Lobster Place in Chelsea Market presents an expanded seafood counter with options ranging from fresh and steamed lobsters to whole-tuna butchering. In addition to cold and hot sandwiches to go—namesake lobster rolls, oyster po’ boys—other prepared foods include seafood chowders and sushi platters. New to the space is an eight-seat omakase sushi counter and standing raw bar, with beer and sake available to drink.

This is an average place for Chelsea (because there are so many options), but above average seafoody cafeteria in general.  Like a cafeteria, the food is on display right there for you to see.  It's on the fresher side, as far a cafeterias go, though.  The prices are actually fine.  A place called the Lobster Place sounds potentially expensive.  Add Chelsea Market to the mix and it definitely sounds like no bargain.  But I'd say there are bargains to be had here that taste good enough, and if you're willing to actually crack into some lobster (seating situation sucks - it's just the over-crowded public seating in the CM hallway), it's not only good, but it's fairly affordable!


Fresh Seafood, YES PLEASE!! not only are the lobster rolls to die for but the fresh clams and oysters make me jump for joy. I enjoy a place where you can get shrimps and clam chowder, and also take home some great goodies to have at home. It is also located inside of the chelsea market which makes it the perfect Sunday outing if you want to hang out with friends and family. Check out the other vendors but The Lobster Place will grab your attention and keep it.
