NYC - The Official Guide

Red Hook Lobster Pound & Truck


The famous lobster rolls at this Red Hook mainstay aren't all you'll find on the menu, but their popularity is a sure sign you should sample one. Chalk up their deliciousness in no small part to the fact that those buttery, sweet lobster chunks are imported to Brooklyn from the Maine coast. Diners can also opt to try other seafood creation—including lobster mac 'n' cheese, shrimp rolls and New England clam chowder—since nothing here disappoints. Since 2010, the restaurant’s lobster truck, affectionately known as “Big Red,” has allowed seafood-craving patrons to place their orders from Manhattan and Brooklyn locations far from the original Red Hook outpost.
