Marc Forgione's Chili Lobster With Texas Toast

New, 19 comments

Welcome back to the Eater video feature Untouchables. In it, Eater highlights iconic cult dishes that are practically synonymous with the restaurants that serve them. They are dishes that persist through menu changes, that diners return to again and again, that chefs can't remove for fear of revolt.

Chef Marc Forgione estimates that his chili lobster dish makes up about 40 percent of all of his appetizer sales. It's just one of those addictive dishes that people keep coming back for. The recipe was inspired by a crab dish he had in Asia years ago. The chef swapped the crab for lobster and added a few American touches, and now it's one of his signature menu items. Check out the origin story above.
