Lobster prices

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.
