426 Amsterdam Ave., New York, NY
Status: Opens at 4 PM today
Just under two weeks ago news broke that Luke's Lobster, the popular lobster roll shop now with locations in the East Village and on the Upper East Side, was opening a new, small storefront on Amsterdam Ave. over on the west side. And already, she's ready for her closeup! According to the Luke's Lobster website and twitter, the UWS shop opens today. And a phone call to its sister spot on the Upper East Side reveals the doors will swing open around 4 PM this afternoon. It will offer the same menu as its other uptown branch with a couple of extras like crab bisque and fish stew.
