Lobster Joint is a little more upscale than the average seafood shack. For one, the Greenpoint restaurant's lobster rolls -- available in classic New England and Connecticut styles -- are pricey, but one bite of the creamy pile of lobster meat is all you need to narrow the rolls down to some of the best in New York. The menu includes a variety of seafood plates, as well as raw bar offerings and sides like mac & cheese, onion rings, and corn-on-the-cob. There's also a full bar stocked with beer (Narragansett, Lobster Ale), wine, and classic cocktails. The full-service spot includes a casual back patio with picnic tables and umbrellas.
Brooklyn’s nautical-style shack, Lobster Joint, has become a fan-favorite amongst locals for its cozy backyard space and impressive seafood lineup. The Greenpoint staple isn’t choosing favorites either. You can order the Maine-centric New England Lobster Roll with mayo, celery, and tarragon, or go with the Connecticut Lobster Roll. The latter’s meat is poached in warm butter and garnished with a sprinkle of chives for a simpler, but equally indulgent summer sandwich. The menu also includes a twist on the trend with the Mexican Lobster Roll, Lobster Club Roll, and BLT Lobster Roll.
