Burger & Lobster: Flatiron, Manhattan, New York, NY, USA
I took my friend who was visiting from Atlanta here because I personally wanted to try their Lobster Roll. It is really difficult to get a good (or even decent) lobster roll in Manhattan, despite it’s proximity to Boston and Maine. However, this place seemed to have some amazing reviews of lobster rolls so we decided to try it out.
The Original Lobster Roll: Lobster tossed in Japanese mayo with chives
– fresh, not overly dressed
– good quantity of lobster
– good ratio of lobster to roll compared to some other places in NYC
– slightly on the smaller end than what I was used to in Boston
The Seven Samurai: Lobster meat dressed in ginger infused mayo with cucumbers, scal- lions, napa cabbage, sesame seeds and togarashi sprinkle
– stuffed like crazy!
– nice balance of flavor even with all the added things to it
– could have larger chunks of lobster in there
I honestly don’t think it was incredibly memorable. It was good, don’t get me wrong. And I do like the variations of the lobster roll. It was actually better than some of the infamous and popular “lobster roll places” in Manhattan, but I’ve definitely had a better roll at another restaurant. I do like how it is served with a side of greens though, at least for me. It breaks up the heaviness of just having the roll itself. I’d still come back again, but it just didn’t slam me with a big “WOW” when it comes to lobster rolls. It’d be nice to try their burgers though since this is a lobster AND burger place. Definitely worth checking out at least once if you’re on a search for a good lobster roll in New York!
