I'm hoping to indulge in lobster when I'm in New York this week. Any places within 10 minute walk of Tenement Museum?

      Luke's Lobster not too bad of a walk - probably three quarters of a mile.

        Ok. I'm going to the Bowery kitchen supply in the morning. Any place around there or on the way to the Tenement Musuem where I could satisfy my lobster craving?

          Oh no. The kitchen supply store I meant was BROADWAY PANHANDLER where I'm headed in the morning. It is between there and the Tenement Museum that I'd be looking for lobster. Sorry

            Use Google Maps to see for yourself if it's within your own personal sense of 'walking distance':

              Luke's Lobster is pretty much directly in-between

            as stated the grey lady or lukes on 7th. Given the short distance between thw tenent museum and bowery kitchen supply there is not much and no one is serving lobster rolls at the earliest probably aroud 11

              11-11:30 would be about right.

              Thanks all for your suggestions. Because of time restraints I had to taxi straight to the Tenement Museum for my tours. But happily I had lobster rolls at Grey Lady, just around the corner, after the tours ended at 4. They brought them over for me from their associate place, not sure what it's called. The lobster rolls were so delicious. Very friendly wait staff. I highly recommend. Then I walked to Russell and Daughters and brought bagels and lox back to my hotel. I've been wanting to see that place for years. It was much smaller than I imagined. I'll give a full report of my trip as soon as I can.

                That is the cutest thing ever: "Russell" and Daughters

                There is no Russell. It is Russ and Daughters as in Mr. Joel Russ
