Freshly caught Lobster rolls can be readily found in small towns lining the north eastern coast - Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut - you want it, they've got it. So what happens when a boy growing up on the coast moves inland to the city? In walks Luke's Lobster.
A Georgetown University grad, Luke Holden had the brilliant idea to give the metro markets something that they had greatly been missing - a quality lobsta roll. With his dad owning a seafood processing company in Maine, he already had a trusty supplier on board. The first Luke's opened in NYC, but Luke travelled down south to set up shop in his Alma mater shortly thereafter.
Okay, so it ain't a cheap lunch at $15/roll when you compare it to your local burger bazaar, but people, this is a genuine Maine lobster roll. If you ask me, it's actually a good deal.
Thank you, Luke, for bringing fresh, delicious lobster from Maine to me!
Luke's Lobster currently has locations down town around Penn Quarter, in Georgetown, and in Bethesda Row.
