Meet a Lower Manhattan Business: Luke’s Lobster


Luke’s brings new meaning to “Maine” street in the Financial District. Luke’s Lobster recently opened up its fourth New York City outpost in the district, and the 14 seats fill up quickly come lunchtime (though you can get the lobster roll combo complete with kettle chips and a drink to go).

“Everything is caught, purchased, cleaned, cooked, packed in Maine,” said Vice President Ben Coniff. “You’re going to get the same roll every time you visit.”

Luke Holden’s father, Jeff, ships the lobsters from his longtime business, Portland Shellfish. Each day, Luke’s shells out hundreds of pounds of tasty lobster rolls. It’s open ’til 9 each night and ’til 8 on weekends.

And now Luke’s is looking at a discount program for Lower Manhattan residents and is available for parties.
