Lobster tails Hartford area

Thinking of doing lobster tails on the grill for the first time and wondering if there are any suggestions on where to get them for best quality? Some thoughts are Stew Lenords, BJs, City Fish? Cooking tips would be appreciated as well. Thanks

    I haven't been to City Fish in a while, but they would be my first choice. I have not done lobster on the grill so I can't really say, except to NOT cook it through on the stove first, you'll end up with horribly tough lobster (as I discovered in a restaurant.) Such a waste of a good lobster.

      Our family's restaurant always used City Fish. I still know their toll-free number by heart, in fact--back when it used to be a toll call to Wethersfield!

        Lobsters are real cheap at City Fish now. Boil in salted water for 4 minutes and chill in ice water. drain,split in half and grill on shell side for 3 minutes while basting with melted butter. Flip and grill for 2 more minutes. serve with butter and lemon wedges.
