Dear Food Diary:
This summer I couldn’t make it to Maine for the ultimate crustacean feast, but Red Hook Lobster Pound brought it to me…well, sorta… in Brooklyn…
I chase their trucks to satisfy my Lobster Roll (my favorite one in NYC) cravings, don’t get me wrong, BUT since I made it all the way to Red Hook, Brooklyn, I’m having the Fresh Steamed Lobster 1.5 lbs Dinner for $25.
If you really can’t look at your food in the eye like my friend B, the Lobster Roll is of course your way to go, but I’d say don’t be a wimp! You can do it!
Whether you’re driving or taking PT (I’ve done both and the bus actually stops almost in front of the store), Red Hook Lobster really isn’t that far away, surely closer than a trip to Maine.
And if you still have room for dessert, Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain is sorta close by.
