Cravings are funny things...when you have an itch you just need to scratch it. When I fancy lobster I've just got to have it. On this trip to NYC I suddenly wanted this snack and started searching for somewhere near where I was staying to...More

We came here off of a recommendation from our friend. We were SO IMPRESSED! We have never had a lobster roll this delicious before. The chunks of lobster were huge and falling off of the bun! It was so delicious, buttery, and tasty. The bread...More

Although pearl oyster bar will always be my favorite lobster roll, Luke's is completely different and a close second. When I don't feel like a massive blowout I enjoy these small simple rolls. Recommend for anyone who loves lobster!!!

Enjoyed my first lobster roll ever here. Thought they gave me a lot of lobster meat for the $$. The bun was very fresh as well. Thumbs up!

If you want lobster on a roll with butter,this is th e place in NYC! Some reviewers complained about price but lobster and NYC are expensive!Yes,you aren't filled up by it but good to have room for the yummy desserts nearby!

This was another foodie recommendation that is an utter farce. Luke is "famous" for its lobster rolls and when I walked in I was literally excited. The buttery smell got me famished and it is a colorful really cute lil shop. The lobster roll at...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
