Lobster roll from Luke's Lobster
East Village
A father-and-son team channels coastal Maine with kitschy decor and, more important, an authentic lobster roll that's short on mayo and long on value. If this is your child's first crustacean experience—whole juicy claw meat nestled inside a toasted, buttered bun—consider her ruined for just about anywhere else.

I first had a Luke's lobster roll when I was living in D.C., and I was hooked from the first bite. CT-style (just butter) is way better than Maine-style (with mayo), the fresh lobster is piled high, and a buttered and toasted hot dog bun has never tasted so good. I am actually addicted. And it's the cheapest roll in the city. And Luke's Lobsters are everywhere. I usually go to the one in the Plaza before walking to Central Park or at the Brooklyn Bridge location to eat my lobster roll on the water.
