We were walking on 33rd, behind Penn Station, when Jodi pointed out Lobster Craft a restaurant that specializes in ...lobster...and follows the success of a food truck operated by Captain Mike, a coast guard captain and licensed lobster fisherman.

More of a casual place, you order at the counter and your order will be ready in just few minutes. I decided to go for The Coastal, their classic lobster roll served on a toasted split-top roll baked daily. They use a whole lobster from Maine, from the claws to the tail, and for sure there is a lot of it. The lobster is topped with hot butter and a pinch of their secret seasoning. I thought that it was an ok roll, the lobster being slightly overcooked and needing a bit more butter. It came with some potato chips that were...good for potato chips.

With the lobster roll, instead of a beer, I decided to go with a glass of Chardonnay, served on tap.

I admit that I was a bit disappointed by LobsterCraft, expecting an outstanding roll, as good as Luke's Lobster or The Red Hook Lobster Pound. But it was not as good, just an ok roll. 

Enjoy (...)!
