    It should come as no surprise that the most valuable asset at the restaurant extension of long time Chelsea Market lobster peddlers The Lobster Place is a lobster roll. That’s true of both the warm, butter drenched “CT” roll and the cold “ME” roll.

    The lobster roll isn’t the reason to come to North River Lobster Co., a floating restaurant on the Hudson River. It’s all about the location. YOU’RE EATING A LOBSTER ROLL ON A BOAT THAT FLOATS AROUND MANHATTAN. For $18, this roll is a steal.

    A warm Connecticut style roll that’s all lobster, spices and finely sliced scallions. They layer it on a leaf of lettuce, which, honestly, is unnecessary and we always remove. Enjoy it during the summer on their big outdoor patio.

    We’re big fans of LJ’s heavy, juicy, overflowing roll of goodness. It’s heavy on the lobster and heavy on the butter, served on a simple hot dog bun.

    Piled high, the Littleneck lobster roll is quite refined. Big chunks of lobster, lots of claw meat, and minimal mayo make the lobster the centerpiece. We also love the homemade pickles that come with it.

    NYC’s most ubiquitous lobster roll, you can grab a Red Hook Lobster Pound roll pretty much anywhere food vendors are found. They seem to pop up at every market, outdoor food festival, and street corner.

    This is what you call the splurge roll. This is one shiny, fancy, well put together, and super sexy roll. All the celebrities and models who hang out at Lure love it, and so do we.

    This is one creamy lobster roll. Massive lobster chunks, and a potent lemony mayo is what you’ll find, along with celery.

    The current king. Simplicity at its finest. There is simply nothing as good as Luke’s. Their rolls are all claw meat, no mayo, on a buttered and toasted bun with some spices on top. Bloody f*cking perfect.

    Mary’s is the OG NYC lobster roll. Its signature mountain of a certain shade of pink lobster and shoestring fries is one of the most recognizable and influential rolls in the world. It’s also one of the most expensive.

    A massive pile of Maine lobster, mostly of that coveted claw and knuckle variety, mixed with a tiny dash of mayo, some lemon juice (key!), minced celery, and spices. Greenpoint is currently serving one of our favorite new lobster rolls.
