$9.95/lb Lobsters for UESers

sarajin Nov 20, 2008 11:49 AM

Just got two 1.35 lb lobsters at $9.95/lb (regularly $15.99/lb) at the Food Emporium on 69th St & 3rd Ave.

There were about 6 left today in the tank. They will steam them for free too.

I had mine way under-steamed and plan to poach them in Breakstone's butter when I get home.. mm!

        Lobster prices seem to be way down..I noticed a lobster special at my local fish market, Pisacane, on first Avenue/52nd Street....any theories on why this appears to be happening? Is it a seasonal price decrease that happens every year?

          It's cause of the bad economy.
