Luke's Lobster Eyes Outpost in Midtown East
MIDTOWN EAST — Luke’s Lobster may be on the way to Midtown East.
The lobster chain, known for its fresh Maine seafood, recently applied for a beer and wine license at 685 Third Ave. at 44th Street, records show.
The plans are not yet definite, said Ben Conniff, vice president of Luke's Lobster.
“Everything is still tentative,” Conniff said. “We’re hoping this all goes forward.”
Luke’s Lobster offers a simple menu consisting of lobster rolls, crab rolls, shrimp rolls and seafood combo platters.
Lobster rolls cost $15, while a combo platter of lobster, crab and shrimp, plus soda and chips, costs $23, according to its website.
Luke's Lobster already has locations in the East Village, Upper East Side, Upper West Side, Financial District and Brooklyn Bridge Park, plus several in the Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia areas.
The restaurant is due to appear before Community Board 6’s business affairs committee on April 24 to get advisory approval for its beer and wine license. The meeting will be held in the Leob Auditorium of NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases at 301 E. 17th St., from 7 to 9 p.m.
