Ben Conniff of the Maine-centric lobster-roll company tells Grub Street that its financial district location is still offline after losing equipment and suffering damage during the storm, adding that it is likely that the South William Street Luke’s will not reopen until next month. In the meantime, Luke Holden and company have decided to update the chainlet’s menu for the first time in three years, adding a lobster grilled cheese loaded with lobster, Gruyère, and white bread from Maine. They’re selling hot cider by the cup, seasonal Maine beers at their Upper East and Upper West Side locations, and two kinds of vegetable soup made by Hurricane’s Soup, a Maine company whose name (and chowders) predate Sandy.
