The Claw: News From Ed’s Lobster Bar

Dear Lobster Lovers,

It’s finally summer! We made it through a very rainy spring, and even survived apocalyptic forecasts. And now, as the weather warms and the sun starts to shine a bit more, we’re getting ready for my favorite season (tomato season), which, incidentally, is also everyone’s favorite season for lobster! I got my vines planted so be ready for the late summer harvest. I’m pretty excited about some new and uncommon varieties that you’ll have to come in to find out about.

Some other things we’re looking forward to (now that everyone has stopped talking about the end of the world) are an updated wine list with some great summer additions in the restaurant and an expanded menu at the kiosk (at the World Financial Center) that features a grilled tuna sandwich, a grilled soft shell crab sandwich, as well as our lobster burger–my personal favorite.

We’re hoping for a warmer and sunnier June, perfect for Lobster Rolls. We’ll also be running a special promotion for the month of June. If you come in with a lobster shaved into the back of your head, you get a free lobster roll. One per shave, per person, per month.
A few upcoming holidays to note: the restaurant will be closed Memorial Day, May 30, and The Fourth of July, July 4th. The kiosk, which is at the World Financial Center behind the winter garden on the plaza near the marina, will remain open on both holidays from 12-5.  And let’s not forget Father’s Day, which is June 19 this year. We will be open, and if you’re not out barbecuing, come on in, with or without Dad! A heads-up for later this fall: I’ll be participating in “Meatball Madness,” the meatball contest at the New York Food and Wine Festival, September 29.

Lots more news coming up next month. Stay tuned and stay cool!

Lobstah Love,

Ed McFarland
