What are some good restaurants to eat lobster at?

What are some good restaurant to eat lobster at? I'm fairly new to lobster-eating, so ideally I'd like somewhere that serves me the lobster meat without me having to work hard to crack the shells.

  1. Luke's lobster in the EV for excellent New England lobster rolls.

    1. If Oriental Garden is still good, Oriental Garden.

        OG is still an excellent place for Lobster.

      2. If you are looking for something other than simply steamed with butter on the side...I would suggest any restaurant in Chinatown. They all crack and section the lobster off for you to make for easy removal of the meat and they offer sauce options. I suggest steamed with Ginger and Scallions or with Black Bean Sauce.

        1. I've eaten lobsters many a time around the city and I can truly say the best preparation for my tastes is at Nougatine -the more casual counterpart to Jean Georges-Well executed without any shell and a very good sized portion to boot!

          1. My favorite lobster preparations have been at Bouley.
