looking fresh lobster with cooking from market
I will be visiting boston in 1 week. I was wondering anyone in the area can recommend some type of seafood market that has fresh lobster and would actually cook the lobster for us to eat and has a seating area to eat?
i was thinking of yankee lobster fish market?
Couple of options in Cambridge. Alive and Kicking has a picnic table outside. Courthouse seafood has a market and restaurant, they will cook anything in the market for $1 more per-lb -- you pick the lobster you want. They also sometimes have clambake specials in the restaurant. Price per-lb is around $9-10 for 1 1/2lb, but varies with size of lobster. Hours are somewhat limited compared to a restaurant. A number of supermarkets will cook for free, but limited in seating area.
Yankee Lobster is a fish market and a restaurant. Lobster is on their restaurant menu so I suspect they would not be too happy if you order cooked lobster from the market and then occupy a restaurant table. You should call ahead and ask. The market and restaurant are in the same room.
