Despite not being a quaint little fishing town in Maine where everyone, uh, quaintly fishes, NYC actually has a bunch of places that do the classic lobster roll the right way.

    The classic split top hot dog bun beauty comes with 1/4lb of Maine meat, and's served either Connecticut style, Maine style, or Tuscan style (tossed in a basil vinaigrette).

    Often muffin topping over the edges of the buttered bun, the throwback roll at Ed's does it right with salt and pepper, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a little minced celery for crunch, and some chives to top it off.

    Theres a limited supply of these, but its worth planning ahead for the buttered hot dog bun filled with chunky lobster, perked up with a little celery and scallion.

    Its super simple classic here is borderline perfect, but if youre gonna have two, roll with the Connecticut style number, or get crazy with the Lobster BLT.

    Sometimes its got a footlong lobster roll, but most times, this fish market just has a really simple and delicious claw and tail meat version on a roll with a nice toast and some butter.

    Utilizing only claw and knuckle meat in its 1/4lb of fresh as hell lobstah, the classic basically comes right from Maine and to your face.

    Peppered with celery and chive, plus an impressive amount of mayo-y lobster thats almost too much for the toasted hot dog bun its contained in.
