Seeking Lobster Roll in Brooklyn..

I overheard something around the water cooler about a business that started selling great lobster rolls near the Brooklyn Bridge Park...
What do you know? And where are your favorite spots for a lobster roll?

  1. I'm sure it's Red Hook Lobster Pound from Van Brunt St in Red Hook; IIRC, I read something recently about them being down there this summer and their website states that they will have a presence at Fulton Pier, which I believe to be at BBP. See them at the Brooklyn Flea at Front Street on the weekends. I recommend them:

    Red Hook Lobster Pound
    284 Van Brunt St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

    Brooklyn Flea
    1 Hanson Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11243

      Actually they were not selected for Brooklyn Bridge Park, but managed to take advantage of adversity and got a better space on the Pier itself next to the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. (Although frankly, I don't think the City should have rented that area to them--or anyone else. It really should have remained public).

        Well, politics and revenues aside, and I agree with you about the city not leasing that particular public space out to private concerns, but they still make a great lobster roll.

        The park opens today, btw.
