Urban Lobster Shack outside the Museum of Sex


Gambit and I were walking towards Little Italy for dinner last night and passed the Urban Lobster Shack sitting outside the Museum of Sex.


We thought we would share a Lobster Roll between the two of us before we stuffed ourselves with pizza.

For some reason, people seem to misunderstand what Gambit says… I think it is due to his English accent.

Gambit had ordered just an original Lobster Roll but for some reason came away with the Lobster Roll combo which included a serving of New England Clam Chowder, setting us back $20 in total.

We walked up the street a bit and sat on a bench in Madison Square Park to dig in.

The Lobster Roll was OK. There were large chunks of lobster saturated in mayo on a toasted hot dog bun.

The New England Clam Chowder was nice and creamy. I will probably experience more chowder in my time to come in New York but I wouldn’t say I would be hunting the Urban Lobster Shack down to get another helping.


After our first Lobster Roll from Snackbox in Times Square, and then from the Lobster Place in Chelsea Markets,   we have decided that they have been quite underwhelming and won’t be having anymore in the near future.
