Guess that’s one way to turn an average Saturday night into an above-average one.
And it’s precisely why you’ll want to grab a date and proceed directly to Lobster Bar Sea Grille when it opens tomorrow. That, and everything else in this slideshow.
Things have changed immensely since this was China Grill and Siena Tavern. Cream-and-white subway tile. Arched ceilings. If it reminds you of Oyster Bar in New York’s Grand Central Terminal, that was entirely intentional.
Many things will happen before you savor oceanic delights like lobster pulled from the deep, icy waters of Nova Scotia, served grilled and whole. Things with vodka, gin, cucumber and dill soda in them that you’ll drink at one of the clustered settees near the entrance, or outside on the patio overlooking South of Fifth.
Or maybe you two will just wander past the metal octopus sculpture and make a night of it in the lounge. Admire the lighthouse-lens chandeliers above and make each other laugh.
And remember, that sea bream displayed in the marble ice chest is more than just decor when served filleted with lemon, oregano and olive oil.
No, really. Remember that.
