    Chinatown- any place with a tank with live lobsters.

      Aside for scouring chinatown for tanks, does anyone have any restaurants to suggest?

        Are you looking for steamed lobsters or something else? I've always enjoyed the lobster dishes (appetizers) at Wallse, and once again had a great lobster roll at Pearl earlier this week.

            I'd like to do steamed whole lobsters.

          City crab is actually ok for the price.
          I cant think of any other place with decent prices for lobster..

            my standy by for lobster is Francisco's Centro Vasco on 23rd....good lobster and sangra for a relative modest price always makes for a nice time.
