Lobsters at Brooklyn's Food Truck Rally in Park SlopeIf you're yearning for that unique Maine lobster experience, there's no need to trek to Maine. Save on gas and hassle and just head to the Grand Army Plaza Food truck Rally, where you'll likely find one of two vendors:
The Red Hook Lobster based in Red Hook, Brooklyn, is a red-hot little foodie fest organized by the local Red Hook Lobster Shack. With the motto, Get Your Claws on the Best Lobster Roll in NYC, their self-described "roving lobster shack" makes the rounds to some of the best parking spots and foodie intersections in town.
Luke's Lobster is another successful lobster-lovers mobile operation, with truck stops in Manhattan's Financial District, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, East Village, and Plaza Food Hall (curated by Todd English) on 59th Street. They're dedicated to sustainable lobster fishing — and serve their lobsters "the Maine way."
Also sometimes available: crab and shrimp rolls and various extras.
