I just read the post on Cobb Salad's and now I am craving lobster salad. Maybe for lunch tomorrow. Any ideas would be great!

    Mary's Fish Camp. Don't know if you can get it out of the roll, but I also don't know why would you want to.

      They probably sell it at Fish, which is on Bleecker, but also has a branch at the Chelsea Market. It's a little spicier than the one at Mary's or Pearl's, but they're all good.

        The Fairway in Red Hook sells lobster salad by the pound (cheap). You can get a lobster roll in their cafe for like $8 with slaw and kettle chips. It's a great deal!

          For $8 instead of $18 it's pretty close to me.

          I had a DELICIOUS lobster salad yesterday at A.O.C. in the West Village. I really wanted to go to Mary's Fish Camp, but they close at 3 and I eat around 4 ish.

          So tasty and a lot of lobster!

              BY FAR the best lobster salad is at Sables on the upper east side. they also have brunch that is TO DIE FOR.

                I instantly thought of Sables when I saw this post, but couldn't quite remember the name. I used to live up there and always got the lobster salad on a bagel. It was kind of decadent and very delicious.

                  My boyfriend has made it his personal goal to find the best lobster salad in the city (he's slightly obsessed) and he claims Sable's wins the title. For the best lobster rolls, however, we like to go to Pearl Oyster Bar.

                    Sables is hands down, the best lobster salad. Throw it on a toasted hot dog bun, and forget about Mary's, POB or Mermaid Inn.
