  1. stew Leonard's generally has them and may even offer them at there cafe.also have had them from h mart on central ave, good but very soft shell at the time and also quite small, fairway and decicco have run ads. if You want a real splurge and want to empty your bank acct.,I just saw pics and the menu from red hat in Irvington, looks great and probably good for a special occasion.

    1. Are you looking to buy them or to dine out and eat them?

        dine out. please. Didn't see the Lobster offeedr on the Red Hat menu

      2. X2o has a $35 3 course prix fixe featuring butter poached lobster. Thursdays in the dylan lounge for a limited time.

        I had a great lobster roll at kittle house the other night. They offer a whole lobster bbake deal on mondays for $40.

          We were at X2O for the lobster special last week. My wife really enjoyed it (I do not eat lobster). There was a wait for a table when we got there around 7, although apparently it was much busier the previous week. I see they have it again this week. I had sushi so we sat at the sushi bar, since there were seats available.

            I hope they have it for a couple more weeks. Haven't been able to get down there yet. Glad to hear your wife enjoyed- my husband will probably opt for sushi too.

        2. well, you're not TOO far from City Island, with lots of good options

              Eastchester Fish has a nice lobSter entree. They have a lobster special on Monday nights. 1 & 1/2 lb lobster with sides for $27.

              1. re: martyl9

                I like the Lobster Box.

                but truth is, for ME, that I find plain steamed or boiled lobster boring. (e.g. Eastchester Fish).
                I much prefer broiled or baked (or better yet, butter poached)

                steaming or boiling a lobster is about the easiest thing in the world to do.
                And with them as cheap as $4 a pound (right now at Restaurant Depot) to about $8 most places, there is no way I'm going to spend $30-40 for someone to boil one for me and melt some butter.
                There needs to be more cooking involved.

                to me, the perfect lobster is a broiled 2-3 lb-er at The Palm in East Hampton.
                or the Lobster and Burratta at Marea.

                1. re: weedy

                  i have a fan of Marea, will have the try the Lobster the next time we visit. thanks for the suggestion as well as the Palm which is around the corner from the NYC office.

                2. re: martyl9

                  +1 on Lobster Box. Also - Arties is very good too.

              2. I didn't read the thread, but the two places near me that I know have lobster are Eastchester Fish Gourmet and Morton's (White Plains).
