Luke’s Lobster – 26 South William Street, 212-747-1700

You might say, in a New England accent, “You can get theyah from heeah,” when you realize just how easy it is to find authentic Maine lobster roll in Lower Manhattan. The father-son duo behind the seafood sensation, Luke’s Lobster, have just opened their newest location at 26 South William Street. The stellar lobster roll is always a great choice, but there are a variety of other morsels from Maine to entice your palate as well. Try the New England Clam Chowder, Empress Crab Claws, or Noah’s Ark – a meal of biblical proportions.

Milk Street Cafe – 40 Wall Street, 646-827-9955

Flat technology tables, produce soak sinks, line busters – terms that may sound esoteric — are just some of the innovations used at Milk Street Café every day to maintain their high culinary standards. Farmers market salads, rotisserie chicken, and panini sandwiches are just some of the gourmet treats you’ll find at Milk Street Café. The Boston-based restaurant offers homemade foods that are so beautifully prepared, you just might pause for a moment to admire the presentation before enjoying your meal.
