Since it’s summer in NYC and therefore one thousand degrees outside, I have been dying to get on a boat. So imagine my glee when Rob told me about the North River Lobster Co. – a lobster shack on a boat! They call themselves a lobster shack, but I haven’t ever been to a lobster shack, so I can’t attest to how accurate that claim is. What they mean, I think, is that there aren’t waiters. You order your food and drinks at the bar, they give you a number, and then you sit down and “your food finds you.”
I had a lobster roll and Rob had a shrimp po-boy. We both had fries and we tried the red and white sangria. Everything was so good! It’s reasonably priced considering you’re on a moving boat. There’s no entrance fee and no time limit.
