Best Chinatown Market for Live Lobster

What is the best and cheapest seafood market for live lobster in Chinatown tomorrow?

Old Chowhound postings mention Center Seafood (206 Center), Lobster Farm (Allen) and Tan My My (Grand/Christie). Are these OK or are there better.

Some people seem to like the lobster place in Chelsea Market. How much more is this place over Chinatown?

I'm looking to cook lobster Cantonese style for three.

  1. lobster farm is a good choice

    1. I really like the place (sorry, forget the name) on Center between Hester and Grand. It's on the east side of the street and is the only one on the block, so its easy to spot.

      Great quality, lots of sizes to choose from, good prices.
