Benjamin Conniff tells us the slowly evolving menu at Lukes Lobster now includes lobster tails, the shacks first foray into hot seafood. The cooked tails are split down the middle, heated on the grill, and then topped with lemon butter and seasoning. They go for $15 for three halves. Whats more, Maine favorite Portland Soup is now hooking them up with chowder made with clams from Portland Shellfish, the supplier owned by co-owner Luke Holdens father. Cups go for $5.50 for a twelve ounce and $7 for a sixteen ounce.
If you still havent checked out Lukes Lobster, you might want to consider buying an $18 ticket for Taste of Seventh Street on February 27 and 28, that gets you a mini sandwich at Porchetta, a mini lobster roll at Lukes, a choice of two cupcakes at Butter Lane, a smoothie at Xoom, and an arepa at Caracas. Go to Scoop St. to buy tickets before they sell out.
