FINANCIAL DISTRICT — Luke's Lobster is bringing its trademark overstuffed rolls to the Financial District this spring.

The Manhattan seafood eatery will open its fourth outpost this May at 26 S. William St., Vice President Ben Conniff confirmed this week.

"We are very excited to be working on our newest location," Conniff said in an email.

Luke Holden opened the first Luke's Lobster in the East Village in 2009 and last year added locations on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side. The buttery, spice-dusted lobster, which comes from Holden's father's seafood company in Maine, was also popular last summer at the Hester Street Fair.

Luke's is applying for a beer and wine license for the new location, to serve Maine microbrews, Conniff said.

Community Board 1's Financial District Committee will take an advisory vote on the license April 6.
