But I must stay true to the Chowhound spirit (not that it's a secret, it's been discussed here and TONY). I had the lobster special at Black Pearl/Julep last night. A whole lobster and fries for $15.95 on Tuesday nights. The lobster was spectacular - incredibly fresh, meaty, so very tasty. Far superior to the lobster special at Essex, not that that's saying much. I wouldn't rave about the fries as some others have, but there were definitely devoured quickly. Sit outside, in the back, have a beer, crack open a lobster, and love life.
