We at the Red Hook Lobster Pound take great pains to deliver the freshest lobster and lobster rolls to the good people of New York City. We drive up to Maine several times a week, to bring home the best that Maine has to offer. The Red Hook Lobster Pound specializes in fresh-catch lobster as opposed to pounded lobster. Fresh-catch lobster comes directly off of the Lobster Boats and has not been sitting in cordoned-off coves or (pounds). The best analogy is to free-range chicken vs. the standard farmed variety. Our lobster simply tastes more lobstery, and they are livelier, as they have been living in their natural environment up until the their trip to New York. We do not sell lobster bigger than 2lbs, as the larger lobsters are the “breeders” and essential to sustaining a healthy lobster fishery. Maine has some of the strictest lobster fishery regulations, which means that our lobsters are not only delicious but ecologically sound. Our acclaimed lobster rolls are made with fresh-picked Maine lobster meat, at touch of homemade mayo (or not), a bit of celery and spices. If mayo is not to your liking, try a Connecticut Roll with just lobster and butter. We bring our top-split buns down from Biddeford Maine, to add to the authentic Maine experience.
