Lobster Place is a seafood experience like no other. Inside our Chelsea Market space you’ll find a top-notch fresh seafood counter, raw bar, sushi bar and fresh steamed lobsters to stay or to go – not to mention our Michelin-acclaimed Cull and Pistol Oyster Bar and the city’s best lobster roll at C&P Galley. We’ve been pioneering unique seafood experiences since 1974 when we first brought live lobster to NYC directly from the Maine coast – and a visit to our Chelsea Market outlet will show you the latest unforgettable chapter in that 45+ year story.

This is the place for super fresh raw oysters. There are varieties to choose with instructions of specific species one is looking for. If we didn’t have lunch before running into this place, we would definitely choose this place for lunch to try their seafood.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
