Brooklyn Fish Camp- lobster roll

tiger2 | Aug 17, 2008 07:37 PM

Had the lobster roll at Brooklyn Fish Camp tonight and was disappointed. Lobster roll was significantly smaller than I've had here in the past and much heavier on the mayo. Almost a mayo sauce. It was totally buried on the plate under a mountain of fries. The roll has always been pricey, but at $33 it really felt like a ripoff. The small amount of lobster meat that was there was delicious- perfectly cooked and seasoned (once a lot of mayo was scraped off)- and contained two great claws.

I've enjoyed the lobster rolls here in the past and never had a complaint about portions, prices, etc. In fact, I've usually struggled to finish the rolls. I hadn't been to Brooklyn Fish Camp in a few months, so maybe this has been a trend for some time? Is it increases in the cost of lobster or running a restaurant in this economy?

On a side note, my husband had the grilled barramundi with a pineapple/pink peppercorn salsa that was delicious and seemed fairly priced at $18. The peel and eat shrimp appetizer was very good too.
