An Underground Lobster Pound in Greenpoint
Liza Mosquito de Guia of food.curated will be on the panel at Afternoon Snack, a New York new food media event at Whole Foods Bowery this Friday. Her latest mini documentary is on Ben Sargent, a Boston-born traditionalist when it comes to lobster rolls, who claims to be fiercely dissatisfied with the state of the sandwich in New York City.
Sargent outlines his painstaking approach to the perfect New England-style lobster roll. You can follow his recipe or, alternatively, the instructions to access his Underground Lobster Pound in Greenpoint. Once you get your hands on his cell phone number or email address (via his website), he'll tell you how to get to his apartment. If it's late at night--or, presumably, if you sound sketchy--you'll get your lobster roll through the mail slot.
