Ed’s Lobster Bar (SoHo)
Last Thursday I was having a really bad day, for no real reason at all. I hadn’t slept much the night before (again, for no real reason at all), I had little energy and just felt lost. Turns out that all I needed to snap out of it was a night out with my girlfriends. I met Traci and Arienne at Ed’s Lobster Bar, which had been recommended to me by Farimah.
The place is adorable. You can almost forget you’re in SoHo and pretend that you’re in a seaside restaurant in Cape Cod. It has a very beachy, casual atmosphere. And with red denim a fashion trend this season, many of the patrons were even rocking what’s traditionally the Cap Cod look.
The staff at Ed’s Lobster Bar is very friendly and laid back. Our server recommended the Lobster Roll which is served with fries and pickles. I went with his recommendation, getting the lobser on a butter roll. Our server was nice enough to substitute a salad for the fries, agreeing to my request to have romaine lettuce instead of regular mixed greens which is the typical substituion. I just really wanted the crispiness of the romaine as a texture contrast to the “mushy” lobster roll.
The result was an amazing dish. Put the pickles on top of the roll – YUM! Ed’s Lobster is going to be an ongoing destination for me and the Lobster Roll will be my must-have. If you like lobster, check this place out. You won’t be disappointed.Tweet
