Ed's Lobster Bar
What we love…
- Lobster, obviously!
- Sure an 8 course meals with intricately prepared lobster is great, but come on admit it, there's nothing like big chunks of fresh chopped lobster in light mayo on a soft, buttery white bun.
- The portions are pretty large and the rolls are stuffed with so much lobster they've used hot dog buns that can handle the volume. The rolls come with a generous side of fries, and Ed's special pickles which are the cherry on this seafood sundae.
- Lobster rolls aren't a new trend in New York, but they're one of those meals that always seems to hit the spot, and of course reminds us of long summer days we long for.
- At Ed's, Lobster rolls reign supreme but there's much more on the menu. You'll find a selection of New England style treats like clam bakes, steamers, mussels, chowder, lobster sold by the pound, and a lovely oyster bar. Try the fried oyster and bacon slider to warm you up for the main lobster event.
- Before owner MacFarland opened this popular eatery (and after he graduated from culinary school), he spent six years learning the ropes at another one of New York's finest—Pearls Oyster Bar.
- Six years working with New England grub paired with his love for fresh, simple foods, makes for a restaurant that, since 2007, has steadily been pleasing New Yorkers and tourists alike.
- The restaurant itself is small with only a few tables and a long bar that is always packed. The entire space is modern and bathed in white giving the feeling of a contemporary seafood joint that could be right next to the sea.
- The bar serves a number of beverages including a great Bloody Mary made by a very attentive bartender.
