Cooked Lobster in the City?

foodieintraining Aug 12, 2008 12:50 PM

I wanted to cook lobster for my boyfriend's birthday but I'd rather buy a pre-cooked lobster to bring home if it will taste better. Any suggestions are to where I can purchase a good pre-cooked lobster?

    The fishmongers at the Union Square greenmarket sell pre-cooked lobsters. But I don't think it will taste better than if you cooked it yourself.

            Chelsea Lobster in the Chelsea Market. Citarella also has them. They're not too hard to cook though as long as you have a big pot.
