Since 2011, the lobster roll specialists have been representing crustaceans in midtown with their Nauti Mobile, but a brick-and-mortar joint is finally on the way at 685 Third Avenue, just a block away from Grand Central Terminal. The new spot will have a beer and wine license, as well as patio seating in the form of block-through park space that runs between 43rd and 44th streets. Partner Ben Coniff says once the shop is up and running, the midtown Luke’s will also offer delivery in the neighborhood, seven days a week. Per usual, the Luke’s crew has even more in the pots: A Park Slope location is on the way, and they’re working on a cookbook. [Related]
