Consider the Lobster Roll

Take a trip to the Cape without leaving the city.

  1. 1. Mary’s Fish Camp

    64 Charles St., at 4th St.; 646-486-2185

    The recipe is simple—just titanic hunks of lobster given the Hellmann’s treatment and shoved into a Pepperidge Farm top-loader. But the result is astonishing.

  2. 2. Pearl Oyster Bar

    18 Cornelia St., nr. Bleecker St.; 212-691-8211

    In style, quality, and sheer, ecstatic crustacean delight, virtually identical to Mary’s.

  3. 3. The Mermaid Inn

    96 Second Ave., nr. Fifth St.; 212-674-5870

    In a neatnik break with tradition, Mermaid serves its lobster roll on a racy brioche hamburger bun.

  4. 4. Tides

    102 Norfolk St., nr. Delancey St.; 212-254-8855

    A fine lobster roll from a Mary’s Fish Camp veteran.

  5. 5. Ditch Plains

    29 Bedford St., at Downing St.; 212-633-0202

    The latest addition to the burgeoning clam-shack category, Ditch Plains serves a decent lobster roll from seven in the morning till 2 A.M.
