Few foods say luxury like lobster. And no other lobster has the neighborhood-born cachet of Red Hook Lobster Pound’s. The Pound’s only about a year old (just like us!) but already it’s a Red Hook staple and a major player in the borough’s food-truck explosion. We had to get our claws on a little something for our birthday raffle (sorry, Sizzler, maybe next year). The result: a $50 gift certificate that’ll bring in quite a catch.
What’ll $50 get you at Red Hook Lobster Pound? Maybe some tender lobster and moist shrimp with homemade mayo on buttered bread, or some crab cake sliders, plus a bowl of bisque or chowder, perhaps. You’ll have to figure out the perfect combination. But we’re sure you can handle it.
And if you land somewhere short of Red Hook on your newly-won lobster quest, no need to fret. The Pound can be found in mobile form at street fairs, festivals, the occasional blogger meetup and at the Brooklyn Flea every Saturday. Check here for more info. And save your appetite for this raffle, seriously.
The First Annual Brokelyn Charity Ball will be held June 10 from 7 to 11 at at Night Owl in Williamsburg, 160 N. 4th St. at Bedford Ave.
