We loved the vibe of the lobster place and we didn't wait long to tuck into the tastiest lobster roll served on a toasted bun. We definitely would have gone back for another roll if we had had more time in NY.

Crazy, busy seafood place located in Chelsea Market. Fresh seafood and fish are the specialties and are worth the inconvenience of no seating, standing room only. Lunch time is the worse, but it appear always to be packed. We loved the Lobster Rolls. Be prepared...More

Chelsea Market touts concepts of all sizes. One of the bigger of these is The Lobster Shop, a seafood place where fish of all kinds cant be bought and the titular is crustacean is prominent in many a good dish.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York

This is a seafood restaurant, not a hotel, more like a market with a clam bar and open seating. Very fresh fish and great NE clam chowder. Enjoy.
