Beloved seafood sandwich shop Luke's Lobster of New York City, DC and Philadelphia has long been rumored for a Boston expansion, and the company now confirms with Eater that the rumors are true. Luke's Lobster does indeed plan to open shop here in Boston in the near future, though details on the location and timing are currently unavailable. Meanwhile, Bostonians can get a taste of Luke's Lobster at the upcoming Supply Good Market pop-up flea market on Newbury Street, hosted by Jamestown Properties. The event is a fundraiser for the Spaulding Rehabilitation Center, where survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing have been treated. According to a press release, Luke's will be serving "New England split-top buns piled with a quarter pound of fresh lobster, not lobster salad" sans "other fillers" and with "just a tiny swipe of mayo in the bun."
The company, which opened in the East Village in 2009, also shares a statement about the significance of the event. See below for that and for the dates and hours of the upcoming pop-up. And stay tuned for further details about Boston's own permanent Luke's Lobster.
Luke's is honored to contribute to this historic city's recovery from the spring's tragic events alongside so many other amazing businesses. Join the Mayor over the weekend to do a little Back Bay shopping, enjoy a lobster roll, and celebrate a great city.
