Best Place to Buy Fresh Lobster in the District

DCJamie | Jul 30, 2010 06:40 AM

I'm talking retail sale (Giant, Safeway, Trader Joe's, Maine Ave., etc.). Every grocery store seems to have the same high prices, and while I realize that this is generally the most expensive shellfish, the lobster industry has been in a downward spiral, and at one point in New England last summer, lobster was selling for less per pound than bologna because no one was buying it.

Is there anywhere in DC that one can find a (relatively) reasonably priced live lobster, or failing that, lobster meat?
