Busy or what at Sunday lunch, we chanced on this Chelsea Market spot on the way to the Whitney. Always a food market addict, I went in just for a look. The lines were awesome but two places at the sushi bar suddenly appeared. Obviously we took them, after all, we were just going to have a snack. Whatever, ocean... More

I loved being able to walk up to the counter and pick and choose one oyster at a time from a bewildering array on ice. I tried 4 different strains, they were all clearly fresh as they were freshly shucked and full of liquor.

Lobster is very good, but other dishes not so much. First time I had lobster which was delicious, second time I had fish and chips and shrimps both were no good.

We were amazed at the amazing variety of seafood at The Lobster Place. Very educational - I felt I needed to go home and review some cookbooks to even learn how to prepare some of these items, since they were completely new to me. However, the highlight of our visit was tasting the wonderful soups - particularly the lobster bisque... More

I had a pleasure to taste their lobsters and oysters and I couldn't stop! Everything is super fresh and tasty! I love seafood, so it's my favorite place in Northern America so far. I like the atmosphere of the place and the way all people were getting their hands dirty. Worth a visit!

The Lobster Place is located in Chelsea Market. There are several options here, take home fish & lobsters, eat in lobster counter or a sushi bar. On this day I ate at the sushi bar. It's very crowded, it moves fast, service is rushed - but the sushi is the best I've had outside of Japan. Fresh, great knife skills... More

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 City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene.
