best lobster dinner in Manhattan?

I'm treating my staff to dinner in about a month or so; the uppity rookie requested lobster.

I'm game. Any thoughts?

  1. If you want to go for your basic lobster on steroids, the 3-5 pound kind, then Palm or Old Homestead would work well. They are the size of turkeys. It is quantity over quality but it should impress the rook.

    1. never been, but heard good things bout Fransico Centro Vasco on 23rd between 6th and 7th

      1. Francisco Centro Vasco is a great place for lobster, and very reasonably priced (although the sides -- fried potatoes, rice, salad -- are mediocre). The place has a very festive atmosphere; I bet your staff would have a terrific time.

        1. depends on how many in the staff...if a smallish party you can't go wrong with grilled or steamed lobster at Pearl Oyster Bar

          1. It's far from fancy but there's a place in Chinatown that serves twin lobsters, either with ginger and garlic or with black bean sauce, and I think they're extraordinarily delicious. It's on the corner of Elizabeth and Bayard and is called The New Big Wang. The dish is about $20.
