Lobster Tales: Lobster Claus Arrives, Plus Luke’s and RHLP Expand


This adorable little fellow you see here is Lobster Claus, and the folks at the Greene Grape tell us he’ll be outside of the store this Friday from 6 p.m. till 8 p.m. Fun fun! In meatier lobster news, the Red Hook Lobster Pound’s D.C. truck has proven so popular that according to the Washingtonian’s Best Bites blog, it’s adding a second truck there. Hey! Why not one for New Yorkers? Eh, well, there’s good news here, too: Eater discovers that Luke’s Lobster (also expanding to D.C.) is soon opening a third Manhattan shop on Amsterdam Avenue near 80th Street.
