The Lobser Fest Hits NYC – Get Crackin’…by LaniBelle
Lobster lovers have reason to celebrate this summer –THE LOBSTER FESTIVAL HAS ARRIVED IN NYC! The world’s most sought after lobster, the hard-shell from Nova Scotia, is making its way to Patina Restaurant Group’s menus at unbeatable prices. Usually considered a culinary luxury, PRG’s lobster offerings are extremely well-priced with dishes starting at $7.50 (yes, the same price as 2 Vente Lattes from Starbucks !). The deep, cold Canadian waters yield lobsters with a flavor that is rich and sweet, with plump, fresh meat during the summer months.
PRG’s landmark restaurants are celebrating the arrival of the Nova Scotia lobsters with special menus at all its New York Metro restaurants beginning May 22nd through September 6th.
A la carte lobster menus will vary to reflect the unique style of each restaurant. Specialties include a Crisped Lobster Roll for $7.50 at Cucina & Co., Gazpacho of Sugar Snap Peas with Lobster for $12 at La Fonda del Sol; Lobster Bolognese with Linguine, Local Ricotta and Basil Oil for $22 at Brasserie 8½; Lobster Tempura with Green Papaya and Mango Slaw, Sweet Chili Sauce at Nick & Stef’s Steakhouse for $12; Lobster Bake with a 2 lb. lobster, corn on the cob, boiled potatoes, andouille sausage and clarified butter for $29 at Rock Center Café.
Canadian hard-shell lobsters come from the clean, cold waters of Nova Scotia in the North Atlantic. They are harvested at the peak of their season, when they are healthy, well-fed and strong – the perfect time to enjoy them straight from the sea. YUMMMY!
