The Lobster Club, 169 Thompson Street, Greenwich Village
Projected Opening: Mid-November
Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi's old-school Italian restaurant Carbone is one of the most anticipated openings of the fall. But their down the street sandwich shop, The Lobster Club, also promises to be a fun addition to the neighborhood. The space will have about eight seats plus a takeout counter, with a menu specializing in triple-decker sandwiches, including one version made with sweet, succulent lobster. The old Portatronics space doesn't look like much now, but this should be a quick turnaround. Expect The Lobster Club to open a few weeks before Carbone.
