First course is lobster pizza - a bit dry, but quickly remedied by a dip in the drawn butter. This is followed by the lobster bake. ~1.5lbs lobster which was succulent and sweet, accompanied by mussels, sweet grilled corn on the cob, chorizo, and roasted whole baby potatoes and the whole shebang is served in a bowl of savory broth. Dessert was dense chocolate cake with real whipped cream and strawberries and a martini glass of savory lobster ice cream (which I liked more than my tablemates). Bottle of pinot grigio was thrown in as part of the deal. We had an additional bottle of malbec, one beer, an order of waffle fries, and a spicy tofu entree on chap chae noodles and gai lan. We got out of there for $126 before tip for three people. Not a bad way to wait out Hurricane Earl!
