Any good sales on live lobsters in Westchester, NY?

  1. I'm so glad you posted this - I was about to ask the same question - I am having a birthday dinner celebration on Tuesday and want to serve lobster. I will need 8 of them. They were $6.99/lb at the Stop & Shop last week (and $8.99/lb on Cape Cod).

    1. $5.99 Soft Shell at Ebb Tide in PortChester

      1. If you're willing to drive up to Exit 6 on 95, Shoprite at Commerce Park is selling 1-1 1/4lb at 4.99/lb after shopper card discount. They have excellent seafood department and other offerings throughout the store that might make the trip worthwhile. One of the best supermarkets in the area.

          Beat me to it, louuuuu.....

          They also had larger lobsters on sale last week (2-3 lbs) at something like $6.99/lb.

        2. Recently $3.99 for small soft shells at Restaurant Depot in Mt. Vernon. Trade only -- need to have a business license to get in, but maybe you have a friend in the caterning biz?

          NB: to my surprise, I've found their seafood to be sensational -- limited selection usually, but extremely fresh. Love that the shellfish comes with the tags indicating date of harvest and shipping.

            Back on sale at $3.99 this week at Restaurant Depot.

          2. $3.99/lb for the chicken lobsters at Stew's this week, starting today.

            1. Anyone have info on best prices for hard shell?

                Stewies are hard shell. And hard to beat that price.

                Shoprite at exit 5 still has them for 4.99 -- a little closer to Mamaroneck for you. Plus they'll steam them for you gratis. They stay warm for over an hour so time to take home and crack and have freshly steamed. No need to stab a knife between the creature's eye or torture them yourself. Leave it to the fishmonger to do the dirty work.
