New York-based Luke's opened its first Chicago location in spring 2015, and they serve up a pretty solid lobster roll for $15. The meat is lightly dressed with both butter and mayonnaise, sprinkled with spices, including thyme and celery salt, then tucked into a well-buttered bun. The meat is just a bit too cold, so let it sit for a few minutes before digging in. But it's the crab roll, packed with tons of sweet crab, that steals the show.

You'll pay an arm and a leg for the privilege of eating lobster in the middle of the Loop, but everything here is so delicious that it almost seems worth it. Luke's first Chicago location serves up rolls, bisque and grilled cheese sandwiches that are packed with the venerable crustacean. Close your eyes, take a bite and pretend you've been transported to a costal town in Maine during you lunch break.

Loved this Luke Lobster. I've only been to the ones in NYC before, and was thrilled to see this when I was in Chicago for a business trip. Really friendly wait staff. They have a new kale salad option with lobster on top, which is great! I like that they are exploring ways to expand their menu beyond the crazy good lobster rolls.
