This was my first stop in New York shortly after arriving and it was one of the best things I ate in NYC. We only tried the lobster roll but I'm sure the other stuff on the menu was just as good. Note that it was very small inside for dining, probably 4 tables or so. We sat by the... More

This is a hidden gem that I'm glad we found! They have very fresh and delicious seafood. We ate the trio, the bisque, the claws, and lobster grilled cheese...everyone loved what they got! Very fast and friendly service too. Beware: no public restrooms!

Delicious quick eats - we shared a lobster roll, gruyere and lobster sandwich and a clam chowder. Perfect quick lunch, seriously tasty food!! This is a 'grab your food and go' place - wouldn't want to spend too much time in there as it's quite small and the smell of all the cooking is quite over-powering. FYI - doesn't serve... More

If you appreciate lobster, then this is the spot for you. I was a little taken aback by the prices. Yes, I know, it is seafood - better yet lobster but $21 for a sandwich, side and chips... I purchased the lobster sandwich, it is not a very large portion size. I was surprised that it was served cold, I... More

This place is in the "The Plaza" hotel and food court. There are plenty of things to choose from but I think Luke's is the best! I ate the trip. This was the crab, shrimp, lobster. There are no fillers in here. It is 100% meat in between these buns. It is 20.00 but so worth it. The lobster is... More

A hole in the wall but that is what this place is about. Come for the Lobster Roll. Expensive but a real pleasure to shell out the dough

Me and my boyfriend tried the Trio rolls (crab roll, lobster roll and shrimp roll) for lunch and from the first bite we where sold and immediately regretted that we already had made dinner plans. I would move to East Village just to be close to Luke's Lobster and be able to eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. That's... More

If you are a foodie and heading to NYC this is definitively a place to stop by, the Chelsea market offer every deli you like. If you are lobster in love go to Luke's lobster they serve fantastic lobster roll. T is not a seated place it is more like a seafood bar where you can buy raw fish for... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
