I love lobster rolls and always mention the fact that French people are always surprised to hear that such a delicacy that is lobster can be served in a sandwich! But when they try, they get hooked. I did for sure. I remember the first time I tried it: it was at the food truck festival in South Street Seaport. After eating the food from food trucks, here it was: the Red Hook Lobster Pound. I remember the big chunks of lobster simply cooked in butter, the almighty crustacean being the star of the dish. Since then, I tried quite a few, but Mary's Fish Camp was missing from my list. So I decided to go for lunch on a weekday. It was not that crowded, pretty quiet and relaxed. They sat me at the bar where I had a nice view of the kitchen that was quite busy shucking oysters and clams, and preparing mainly two dishes: the fish tacos and the lobster rolls. 

Although there were plenty of interesting dishes on the menu like the sardine banh mi, I stayed with my first choice. Few minutes after i ordered, here it was: a lobster roll with big chunks of lobster smothered by mayonnaise. It was a bit messy because the lobster was overflowing out of the small roll and I was a bit scared that the mayo would overpower the lobster. It was not the case as the lobster was cut in big chunks. It was delicious: well cooked for sure. With the roll, I had the choice between a salad or shoestring fries. I chose the latter. The fries were good, not that crispy and deliciously greasy.

It was overall a good lobster roll, but I thought it was small for $37, even considering the quantity of lobster. If you do not mind the price, you should check it out. I would go back there and try some other specialties, their menu being very interesting. 

Enjoy (I did)!
