1. Luke's Lobster 93 E 7th St, New York, NY 10009 (East Village)

Long before Luke's Lobster became a national chain, it was a tiny seafood shack in the East Village. The original location serves the chilled lobster rolls that made the New England-inspired counter-serve so damn popular -- as well as crab rolls, shrimp rolls, and sides. If you really want a taste of Luke's, order the Taste of Maine combo, which includes half-portions of the aforementioned rolls (all served on buttered and toasted split-top buns), crab claws, chips or slaw, a pickle, and a (non-alcoholic) drink. The shop's small size makes it conducive to take out, but there are a few stools.
