Best place to buy live lobsters this time of the year?

I know prices may be high, but it's for my Dad's 80th b-day. I'd actually rather pay a bit more and have lobsters with good flavor, and not for bugs that have lived in a tank for a long time. Hopefully the boats are going out, but I guess these storms don't help. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  1. James Hook & Company on the Waterfront or New Deal in Cambridge.

    I picked up some wonderful local crabs at New Deal last week. You should call ahead to be sure they have lobsters when you want them.

    1. For lobsters I'd stick with James Hook or a similar opertaion that moves a lot of them. This is typically the most expensive time for lobster. MB had soft shells last week for $8.99
