it's my birthday this weekend and i thought i'd stay in and make a "surf and turf" steak and lobster meal. does anyone know what would be the best place to buy lobster in baltimore city?
Faidley's in Lexington Market always has lobsters, but they tend to be expensive.
The Canton Safeway (more or less in my neighborhoo) used to have live lobsters, but stopped carrying them a year or so ago. The closest place (besides Faidley's) from me to reliably get them is at the Giant on Merritt Blvd. in Dundalk.
I also love fresh steamed lobster but have been unable to find it for so long in baltimore as take out. We used to vacation in NJ where the Shop Rite had great live lobsters steamed to order for like $5.99 a pound. We found a Shop Rite in Baltimore that steams them and they are fantastic. They are fresh in the tank every week. You'll have to look up Shop Rites address on internet but I know there are three of them in the Baltimore area. Hope this helps.
The Superfresh on 41st Street has a lobster tank, I have seen them on sale for $7.99 a lb there.
