Cheap Lobster

skess | Mar 6, 2007 02:25 PM

Is cheap lobster an oxymoron? Or am I just a moron for thinking it can be found?
I hope not.
My brother's coming into town, and I think he is convinced that lobster tastes different on the East Coast than in the Midwest. Whatever his reasons, he wants to have some lobster while he's here. I'm in college, so the cheaper the better. (Not to say this isn't a general principle I'll live by when I'm out of college)
I know that you can buy them at Shaws and get them steamed, but I'm just not too keen on that idea. I'm a big fan of trusting the professionals. And I am no lobster professional.
So, no car to get outside of the metro area, so accesibility is an issue. I know on my way to the BPL in Copley I've seen some cheap lobster specials outside of some of those bars on Boylston. Still have them? Any good? Barring any good, is it worth it anyway? What about the touristy places by Faneuil?
On Chowhound suggestions, I went to Morse Fish Co. on Sunday and enjoyed a delicious shrimp cocktail and a decent crabcake with out of this world tartar sauce. Unfortunately, they didn't have lobster on the menu. Would like to strike chowhound gold once again...please help me out!
