It really is the time of year for lobster launches: We told you about the latest roll vendor earlier today, and just hours ago, Lobster Joint announced it's opening in Greenpoint. You can see some interior shots and the menu by chef Justin Ernsberger (formerly executive chef of Walter Foods and Mermaid Inn, and a consultant at Lure Fishbar) by visiting its Facebook page. Meanwhile, check out our slideshow of the fifth Lukes location (that count includes the recent truck) and youll see the beach-shack aesthetic is in full effect here, with the addition of a takeout window for lobster rolls. Lobster Joint is open till 2 a.m., but Luke's is keeping earlier hours: It'll be open weekdays from 10:30 a.m. till 9 p.m., and (initially) from noon till 8 p.m. on weekends. The menu is below; beer is coming soon.
