Great meal at Brooklyn Fish Camp

Nancy | Jul 21, 2005 10:19 PM

My wife and I just came back from a delicious dinner at Brooklyn Fish Camp. No line (week nights appear to be a much better bet if you don't want to wait), lovely staff, and lobster rolls the way lobster rolls were meant to be: yeah, it's expensive, but for $24 you get a generous portion of big, fresh, lightly dressed chunks of choice lobster on a yummy roll with addictive, thin fries. And having paid $22 for an inferior, stale-tasting, over-mayonaised roll at the Mermaid Inn (96 Second Ave. in Manhattan) two weeks before, I was willing to pay top dollar for the real deal.
 
Perhaps the room is noisy when the restaurant is packed, but it sure wasn't tonight (Thursday). As for the "decor"--my friends, this is a seafood shack, not Nobu. As for how I feel about paying $60 with tax and tip for two lobster rolls with fries and a diet coke? Resigned. Yes, it's too much money, but wow it sure is good! We'll be back!
