Time Out says

Finding a lobster roll that’s both fresh and tasty—year-round—wasn’t an easy feat before Luke’s Lobster’s little counter spots began popping up everywhere from the Upper West Side to FiDi. 

Not only does Luke’s ship its lobster fresh from Maine, but all of the crustaceans are sustainable and traceable. Larger options for two, like the Taste of Maine combo of half a lobster roll, half a crab roll, half a shrimp roll, two crab claws and a drink and chips ($24), make for affordable samplers if you’re in a crabby mood. The fresh, Maine-style lobster roll is a true classic, not slathered in mayo and on a proper buttery, split-top bun.

The rest of the menu is supplemented with New England classics like clam chowder ($9), which also holds up. But the best complement to all that fresh lobster meat is a cold beer, and Luke’s stays with the theme again, offering a rotating list of New England microbrews.
