Description
Our very first shack in the heart of the East Village opened in 2009. It’s our smallest location, boasting 8 stools in a cozy, nautical-themed Maine-style lobster shack serving up lobster, crab and shrimp rolls, alongside other classic New England fare. Roll on in to try some of the best seafood NYC has to offer!
