Rock Lobster

Rock Lobster had replaced the old Watusi on Ossington. I was there on two consecutive weeknights and both nights were packed! Beautiful interior, very friendly and cheerful staff (the owner Matt was there and was very informative and fun to chat with), and very reasonably priced for the neighbourhood.

Highlights were:
Lobster Caesar: served with a sizable 1/2 lobster tail
Lobster Cappuccino: delicious stock. Although I was hoping they'd top it with foam instead of sour cream.
Lobster Roll: Just like I had remember from the popup. Definitely my favorite dish.
Many patrons ordered the steamed dungeness crab - looks delicious! We will definitely try them next time.

The not so good:
Lobster poutine: luke warm, chewy fries. meh.
Lobster mac n' cheese: under-salted, and again, not served piping hot like it should be.

I really like the vibe. It's a good addition to the Ossington Strip.
