NEW: Red Hook Lobster Pound

Puppimus | May 2, 2009 11:43 AM

I checked this place out today, and it's very cool! It's a storefront on Van Brunt Street (Red Hook, Brooklyn) that sells fresh, live Maine lobsters. The lobsters live in 2 huge vats with circulating water. They have lots of room to skitter around, so you can see that they are fresh and lively. They definitely seem like a better specimens than their buddies at Fairway.

The lobster is very fairly priced -- today, it's $9.50/lb. They don't have it yet, but the owner says they will soon have a steamer to cook lobsters on site if you want.

Red Hook Lobster Pound is open every Friday through Sunday, but might close earlier if they sell out.
