    Red Hook Lobster pound. I had my best lobster ever there last year, and I'm from New England. They've recently reopened after Sandy flooding and I am happy thart its still a BYOB, no frills place

        Red Hook Lobster can also be found at the Brooklyn Flea and the South St. Fulton mkt. On a walking/ferry tour of NYC today (self guided), my Maine brought up (summers) wife and daughter(also Maine summers) declared it was exquisite.

        They offer it Maine-style (their words) as a lobster salad roll with an interesting scallion/sauce garnish AND as a Connecticut style with butter(my preference), but alas, I didn't have a chance to show the family the 'proper" way since I had a hankering for a McRIB slider/sandwich one of the BBQ places was offering (not to be confused with golden arches). Also excellent
