Yummy Lobster Rolls in NYC

I'm just wondering what some of the yummier lobster rolls in NYC are.

So far, I've had Luke's, which I do like, as well as Red Hook Lobster Pound, which I thought was even better than Luke's. However, at Red Hook, I liked the Connecticut style roll more than the Maine roll, tho both were good.

I also had the one served at the Brooklyn Diner on 57th, but was not impressed with that one at all. The lobster seemed as if it had been sitting around or frozen... kind of like when you go for sashimi and you can taste that it had been recently defrosted.

Outside of NYC, I've had the lobster roll served Connecticut style at Neptune Oyster in Boston, which I didn't like at all. The lobster didn't taste fresh out of the sea and it was really, terribly over-saturated with butter. Up in Cambridge, I had the lobster sandwich served at Alive & Kicking Lobsters, which was really good. It did have some mayo and spices mixed in, but the amount was minimal.

In general, I'm not looking for rolls that are loaded up with mayo and very little lobster. I've done some looking around online, but curious about what others on here like. Any input on places like Pearl's, Cull & Pistol, The Standard Grill, Ed's Lobster Bar, Mermaid Inn, etc?
