If you have qualms ordering seafood out of a moving vehicle, you'll be smart to let Luke's allay your fears. Luke's Lobster, a popular joint with a handful of standalone shops in both New York and Washington, D.C., is run by a twentysomething Maine native who keeps his menu fresh and simple. Only the fattest knuckles and claws make it into his signature lobster roll, a mayo- and butter-dressed split-top bun piled high with chilled lobster meat. At $15 a pop, this roll may be somewhat of an indulgence; but after giving it a taste, you'll agree it's a worthwhile one.
Oh I wish they had a wine list so I could order some great Puligny Montrachet with my lobster roll. If you're gonna indulge, go for it!
