Want a lobster over 2 lbs- which restaurant is reasonable?

Has anyone tried the 3 lb. lobster at Compass? Would love to hear about any place to get a good lobster dinner! (Any deals at the upscale steakhouses?)

  1. I know the Palm has good lobster deals (but never tried it there). You could also try Centro Vasco in Chelsea - they have humongous lobsters and it is very reasonably priced.

      Yes, the Palm serves up to 7 lb lobsters. I really enjoyed my meal the last time I was there.

        Centro Vasco is my recommendation, both for large lobsters and delicious lobsters. I've had 3 1/2 pounders there, my favorite place for the animal.
