Went to Urban Lobster on Houston for lunch today. Not impressed.
The interior is done-up like a second-rate wrap place in a mall -- uncomfortable rickety plastic top stools and all.
The staff was friendly, but the woman behind the register was reaching under her shirt and massaging her belly while I was eating. A lady, I assume one of the owners, was at a table being very rude and bossy to some guy who was redesigning the layout on her menu or something. When he asked her for a pen, she snapped "What am I, your slave?"
People kept coming in trying to figure out what the place was ("You have fish n' chips?" "no;" "You sell coffee?" "no.").
I ordered the lobster roll. It comes in a plastic take away container even if you're staying (at least mine did). It's made with celery, which I'm not partial to, so I picked it out. The bun was a gummy bready mess with a bit of butter and not well toasted. I understand this isn't Mary's Fish Camp, but come on, toast the damn roll right at least.
The lobster meat was okay. The mayoniase had a weird aftertaste. Together it tasted fishy, which was less than ideal.
$20 with tax. Not worth it. Not returning.
