It occurred to me, reading the post mentioning lobsters at Khoury's, that it is getting pretty hard to find a good restaurant lobster these days. My wife is from Maine and maintains that she can do better at Ralph's than most restaurants we've tried. Nick and Steph's ($30+/lb), broiled, was underdone and when sent back, overdone; Parkway Grill (same price) unexpectedly tough; the Palms is ok but not what it used to be; Water Grill was probably the best around, but home done still seems better. Bizou in Pasadena is done with an amazing sauce and fettucine, and the price is certainly right, but they run out after 7 pm. We remember great restaurant lobsters, but can't find any now.

Are there any chowhound lobster experts? Where can we find something better than at our humble home?
