Lobster Place:

Its time for your taste buds to take a dip in the sea. The Lobster Place offers some of the freshest sea food in New York. Unlike most seafood bought in grocery stores, what the label says is actually what it is here. Often times the whole fish is used as proof that it actually is what it says it is. The fresh lobster is known to be delicious so give it a try or check out their abundant selection of different types of sea food.
