Fresh cheap lobster in LA? or online?
I've been reading on the NY Times and other places that lobster prices are at a 25-year low in Maine. I don't see any price difference in the prices here in LA, though. Santa Monica Seafood is obviously pocketing the difference.
One thing I love to do is get the east coast lobsters and then grill them baja west-coast style with drawn butter, cilantro, limes, and flour tortillas. The sweetness of the Maine lobster is a great combination with the smokey baja-style prep.
Anyway, has anyone found cheap Maine lobsters out here? Or maybe a restaurant serving it for cheap?
Gelson's yesterday advertised a big sale on lobster, but they won't reveal the price until the 15th.
For web sources of lobster please post a separate query on the General Topics board where Chowhounds exchange web order source information.
They're $5.88 / lb. at the Arcadia Market on Duarte east of Baldwin (next to Din Tai Fung). Bought 9 of them today for lobster fests tonight and tomorrow!
$6.99 / lb. at both 99 Ranch in Monterey Park and 168 Market on Valley (they'll steam for free.)
