Lobster Downtown

My brother is in town for about 6 hours (the joys of working for an airline) and he wants Lobster. I cruised through the board and have my own thoughts when it comes to a lobster roll but He is thinking more along the lines of your classic steamed lobster (though something interesting in Chinatown involving lobster is possible) So where downtown would be good for a whole steamed lobster and I do understand it won't be as cheap as if I were to convince him to go North with me.

  1. Yankee Lobster might be a good option. Bonus being you can Silver Line it right there from the airport.

    1. re: mkfisher

      Thanks mkfisher for reminding me of Yankee Lobster. Long walk on the Greenway, checked out the Os Gemos mural and ate way too much lobster, well probably not too much but a lot. My brother and sister-in-law loved it.

    2. many places in chinatown are doing twin lobster specials cut up lobsters with ginger and scallion, I'm pretty sure they will cook it other ways even steamed.
