This Is What a $3.99 Lobster Roll Looks Like

Song 7.2, the Korean pub that brought you the $5 bulgogi burger, has now introduced the $3.99 lobster roll. Well, sort of: A few weeks ago, the restaurant partitioned its former bar area with a glass wall and is subleasing it to a Chinese cook who’s selling dumplings on a stick (89 cents to $1.25), in a sandwich ($2.29 to $2.99), and in soup ($2.49 to $3.29). And because Luke’s is doing such swift business down the block, they’re also selling a lobster roll for $3.99 and lobster bisque for $5. Extra lobster will cost you $1.50, and you’ll probably want to go that route — as you can see here, the regular roll comes on a small hot-dog bun that’s grilled on the flattop, and the paltry amount of lobster meat is drenched in wasabi mayo.

On the off chance this all sounds appealing, you’ll want to text your delivery order (that’s right, text — apparently the place is taking cues from the lobster pusher man) to 917-328-3611. Or if you speak Chinese, you can call 917-250-1305.
