Sunday, September 25, 2016 is National Lobster Day. To celebrate, here are some of the best spots in the city to grab a lobster roll—among other delicious lobster dishes.

Ambrose Beer & Lobster (South Street Seaport): The menu features such lobster dishes as Maine lobster roll (chilled with mayonnaise), Connecticut lobster roll (warm with butter and lemon), lobster avocado lettuce wraps and fresh lobster salad. Lobster-based lunch specials include 1st Mate (two lobster rolls, two chips and two bottles of water) and The Captain (two lobster rolls, two chips and two beers).

Cull & Pistol Oyster Bar (Chelsea): The word “lobster” might not be in the name, but it’s actually represented twice—a “cull” is a lobster that has only one claw and a “pistol” is a lobster that lost both claws. This full-service restaurant from Lobster Place offers a seasonal menu using fresh ingredients. Lobster dishes are lobster ramen, whole North Atlantic lobster and lobster rolls (Maine- or Connecticut-style).

Luke’s Lobster (Various Locations): With 12 restaurants among Manhattan, Brooklyn and Hoboken, NJ, Luke’s Lobster got its start in the East Village in 2009 and has a commitment to using sustainable seafood. Luke’s Lobster is celebrating National Lobster Day with a “Lobstah, Lobstah, Lobstah” special. For $25 on the 25th, customers can get this special that includes a lobster roll (served Maine-style), lobster bisque and 1/2 lobster tail. 

Ed’s Lobster Bar (SoHo): Started by Ed McFarland, a 1995 graduate of the French Culinary Institute, this restaurant offers an Italian spin on traditional New England seafood. Lobster dishes include lobster galette, lobster roll, lobster pot pie, lobster ravioli with mushroom cream sauce, lobster burger, chilled lobster, whole steamed or grilled lobster and broiled lobster.

Red Hook Lobster Pound (Red Hook, Midtown, East Village): In addition to these three permanent locations, you can find Red Hook Lobster Pound eats via its NYC Food Truck and at Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea. Lobster rolls include Maine, Connecticut, Tuscan (tossed in a basil vinaigrette) and BLT (yes, lobster and bacon on one roll). The Red Hook location also has a Surf N’ Turf roll (with prime rib), as well as fresh lobster dinners. There is also lobster mac and cheese, a cobbster salad (Cobb salad with lobster), lobster citrus salad and lobster cheese fries.
