    Sick of sucky pre-packed sushi? Say thank-you to the Lobster Place. Their Sushi and Nigiri combo is the answer to your sushi-loving prayers!

    Pick up fresh steamed lobsters to go. Eat it with a friend in the hallway. Make everybody jealous.

    The remodeled Lobster Place keeps its classic appeal while adding a proper sushi bar and soup stand. Don't miss the live lobster bath in the back featuring daily fresh lobster from Maine and Canada.

    The Scallop Bacon chowder seriously might be one of the best soups ever.

    Best New England Clam Chowder in NYC

    Sean G. · May 21, 2011
  • SkeeterNYC

    Right about now, you'd be dumb not to get the stone crabs or the fresh peconic bay scallops.

    Could be the best fish market in the city. Also, in the back refrigerator they sell prepared foods. Try the salmon rillette. Read more

    Great lobster experience! Must eat in NY..

    Ceren K. · August 23, 2012

    I don't use this term lightly: the lobster bisque soup is life-changing. (Never, ever try the crab and corn bisque.)

    Erica M. · December 20, 2011
  • Lindsay K.

    The pre-made salads in the back fridge are covered in the freshest, tastiest shrimp, tuna or lobster in the city. Great for a healthy lunch on the go.

    Lindsay K. · August 5, 2011
  • Sal M.

    Possibly one of the freshest sashimi I've ever had. It gets caught and sliced within hours sometimes. Not too shabby.

    Sal M. · August 18, 2010
  • SkeeterNYC

    Get the Ivory King Salmon. It's a seasonal must! The only white fleshed salmon and SUPER fatty. Read more

    THE place 4 raw seafood: $12.99/lb live lobsters (or cooked for more $), NE clam chowder, Jonah crab claws, stone crab claws, bottarga, uni, & best variety & value of fresh E & W coast oysters in NYC!

    ZenFoodster Eats · February 26
  • Marc T.

    Lobster roll is too expensive. Go for the lobsters instead and the sashimi's. Pure awesomeness!

    Marc T. · February 14
  • Mike S.

    Stop by the oyster bar and slam a few. I recommend a few sweet necks, then dealer's choice for the rest.

  • Irena M.

    Sashimi is the bomb! Scallop & bacon chowder is also good. Coming back for oysters!

    Irena M. · September 4, 2013
  • Esther W.

    The lobster roll is a combination of a buttery bun and really fresh lobster that works beautifully. And you can also take it to go and eat it at the highline, that has a great view : )

    Just look at the photo.

    Learning to cook? The Lobster Place has an entire bar dedicated to pre-marinated fish, including directions for how long & what temperature to cook them. All delicious & incredibly easy!

    Though this is mostly a fish market, it's a surprisingly good spot for lunch. Dependable soup can be found here, along with lobster in roll and whole form.

    Best place in the city to get seafood!

    Susan C. · April 21, 2013
  • Sarkis K.

    If you're into fresh seafood, it's a must. Grab the picnic box or sushi and post up on The Highline or somewhere in the market.

    Sarkis K. · April 16, 2013

    The best selection of trustworthy fish & shellfish (oysters galore and they will shuck to eat on-site) in NYC. Excellent arctic char, mackerel, striped bass, rock shrimp, sardines & whole trout, etc.

    Great lobster rolls, but no ketchup for the fries!!!! Whatttt????

    Arielle G. · April 26, 2013
  • Dmitry B.

    Это не ресторан в классическом понимании со столиками и официантами. Оформлен под рынок, за прилавком вы выбираете продукты, их готовят и вы по ту сторону прилавка их едите. Неожиданно, но вкусно!

    Dmitry B. · January 5
  • Alexey S.

    Берите сразу лобстер-ролл вместо просто лобстера! Плюс английская похлебка! Вкуснятина! Устрицы с белым вином, разных видов и вкусов.... Сашими... Все очень свежее!
