One of my last days in D.C. we decided to visit Georgetown and a friend in the group mentioned a great little place that had delicious lobster rolls. Why not right? The place isn’t much to look at from the outside. It’s just a hidden white building off of a side street. Once you’re inside, you immediately feel like you’re out to catch the lobster and crabs yourself! Very nautical! It’s a very small restaurant, but very well-decorated. It’s not the best for large groups, but they easily had enough space for the 5 of us upstairs since it was a Monday afternoon. I’m not quite sure what it’s like any other day…
Welcoming and friendly face at the counter!
Chips and Allagash White Beer.
Lobster Mac & Cheese. Maine Lobster. Maine-made white bread. Melted Gruyere.
We were greeted with a fresh face at the counter and she was extremely helpful. We ordered the Lobster Roll and the Crab Bisque (normally Lobster Bisque). I don’t know why, but “The Chef” and I ordered one roll thinking we could share it. We had been munching on small things from other restaurants all day (Cosi breakfast, DC cupcakes, etc.). We didn’t realize how AH-mazing the little “roll” would be! Maybe my expectations were low, but one bite of that roll and I was amazed at how you can have such a simple little sandwich and it just explode with so much flavor and freshness all at once. The lobster was fresh and the mayo was light and complimented it so well. To complete it all was the lightly toasted bun. Yum. Some of our friends felt they liked a more mayo-ey dressed lobster roll that they’ve tried at other restaurants, but I actually enjoyed the freshness of Luke’s Lobster Roll. Afterwards “The Chef” and I had to order something else so we ordered another Lobster roll to go and the Lobster Mac & Cheese to finish off the meal. It was pretty delicious as well. I mean, Lobster and Cheese! They chose Gruyere and I felt that was the perfect pairing…the lobster bisque made a great dipping sauce for it! Haha…
One item worth mentioning (not pictured) is the Clam Chowder. Best I’ve ever had! Fresh, chunky clams in a smooth, creamy chowder.
If you’re looking for a great snack or meal, Luke’s Lobster. Honestly, there was not a single miss. That’s all I have to say! There’s different locations so be sure to look for on near you!
