Good news for those of us for whom there is no such thing as “lobster roll season": Luke’s Lobster is now selling rolls at the Sunday afternoon Foodshed farmers' market on Atlantic Avenue, we noted yesterday while walking by. The cranky crustacean is still a splurge at $15 per roll, but a rep insists it’s identical to the roll sold across the river at the East Village and UES locations, with the same lightly mayo-ed bread, lemon butter, and signature spices.
Luke’s will be serving these on the second floor of the indoor market through the end of January, when they’ll “take a look” at how they’re doing and decide whether to carry on. This river crossing will no doubt add fuel to the ongoing Chowhound Best Lobster Rolls in NYC thread, particularly in Brooklyn, since Red Hook Lobster Pound is now an easy bike ride—though a chilly one—away.
