Help locating 5 lb fresh New England lobster (restaurant or on-line)

1) Does anybody know where we can go for a fresh East Coast 5 lb lobster meal? My wife & I enjoy eating the entire lobster. However, since she has RA, we find it easier to have 1 bigger lobster than 2 smaller lobsters (2 much shell & not enuf meat).

2) Also, as I am an excellent cook (I cook better than some restaurants, incl live lobsters), does anybody know a reliable on-line site for ordering tasty 5 pounders?

I should add that we r very picky on the quality of food we eat.

(I live in Thousand Oaks, CA - 35 mi NE of downtown LA - but will travel up 40 miles)

  1. The Palm restaurant (WeHo and downtown) comes to mind immediately for this...

    Palm Restaurant
    1100 South Flower Street, Los Angeles, CA 90015

        1. re: Servorg

          Another for the Palm West Hollywood. Tender, succulent, premium lobsters from Nova Scotia. Available in 3, 4, 5, and 6 pounds.

      1. For online, I've ordered from Hancock Gourmet Lobster. Can't speak to the whole lobster, but I've ordered lobster rolls and they were great. They offer live lobsters on the website.

        1. Ranch 99 Market on Sepulveda and Victory has 4lb and up. Can't vouch for a NE lobster. They have at least a dozen in their tank all the time

          1. If it's over 4 pounds it ain't from Maine! Legally, anyway.
