Lobster rolls? Yes, please.

We've already highlighted the 10 Best Things to Eat on 23rd Street, but it looks like there soon might be a new contender for good eating on the busy thoroughfare. Signage is up at the Claw, a soon-to-open lobster roll joint located at 269 West 23rd Street (212-627-7700).

According to the Claw's Facebook page, it will offer not only lobster rolls and crab cakes, but will be bringing "Hampton flavors" (related: Is that the flavor of money?) to Chelsea with a selection of "seafood specialties such as crab beignets and lobster mac and cheese." The restaurant will receive daily shipments of fresh lobster and crab from Maine. Sounds like grub you'd want to get your claws on.

 How much lobster is actually in an lobster roll?  Seriously, I'm thinking I would just rather eat a lobster tail or 2.

I went to school with all of them and I am pretty good friends with all of them they are legit!!!  Two of them spent a year in spain traveling around working in some high end restaurants!

This is another bullshit knock off by BUSINESSMEN. All of the lobster roll restaurants get fresh lobster every single day and most of it comes from Maine. Who are they (and Luke's) trying to kid. "Hampton flavors." What BS.

Luke's has frozen lobster despite what they say fyi. Hopefully this place is different; you should be able to tell if it is or isn't right when you try it.

went to school with the chef... hey and most of his stuff are 23 yr kids who had a pretty good dream and a decent amount of start up money. Stop being a cynic and just don't eat at places if you don't like them. You're only one person buddy.
