After three months of renovations, the Lobster Place reopened in Chelsea Market last week. The market has always been great for takeout, but the new-and-improved space is better suited for eating in house. There’s now a sushi bar with a daily omakase selection, a standing oyster bar, and an entire department devoted to lobster. Even better: For the first time, the Lobster Place will sell beer and sake. New grab-and-go sandwiches include an Ipswich belly roll, an oyster po’ boy, and a traditional Maine hot dog. Take a look at the warm-weather-friendly food, straight ahead.
