Where to buy fresh lobster tail in Queens

callado4 | Dec 19, 2011 07:47 AM

Hi, first I want to say that I'm not used to cooking much but I want to make really special and romantic surprise homemade dinner for my girlfriend tonight, it's her birthday today. I wanted to make lobster but I'm not sure how I feel about putting a live lobster in a pot of boiling water and neither one of is is very experienced with eating lobster so I know we would have a hard time getting to the lobster meat. So I figured that making lobster tails would be a lot easier to handle [although I am still considering just making a lobster].

Is there any place in Queens where I can get some good fresh lobster tails today? I read of a seafood market in Astoria and I know there a bunch in Flushing Chinatown (but since I'm not every familiar with how to tell the difference between the best seafood I'm not sure if I want to go there).

Or maybe I should just go ahead and make the whole lobster. If I do make a whole lobster do I need one or two? I was also thinking of making shrimp with the meal since it seems to also be easy to make.

Another question, what would go well with the meal? I can easily make steamed little potatoes and I know she likes that but I'm not sure if it goes well with the seafood I plan to make.

Thanks in advance for any help.
