From a press release:

“As fall quickly changes to winter, the team at Luke’s Lobster is ready to roll out its winter menu. On Tuesday, November 12th two piping hot dishes hit the menu: lobster mac ‘n’ cheese and lobster grilled cheese. These tried and true comfort foods, now with a Luke’s Lobster twist, are perfect for dispelling your winter chills and cost just $12 each.

For Luke’s mac ‘n’ cheese, the team turned to Hurricane’s Soup in Greene, Maine—the same folks who create their award-winning chowders and bisques. Hurricane’s is a small company owned by the Phil Wilbur and his family. Phil has collaborated with the Luke’s team to create a classic, creamy macaroni and cheese with cheddar from Pineland Farms in Maine to accompany the steamed lobster you’ve come to know and love. The Luke’s crew gently hand mixes lobster into each order of mac ‘n cheese so that it stays fresh and perfectly cooked. Lobster grilled cheese, a winter favorite from last year, is back, due to ravenous demand. And it will be as good as you remembered—Maine-made organic white bread that’s buttered, toasted and filled with melted Gruyere cheese and Luke’s lobster.

In addition to lobster-filled comfort foods, our coolers will be stocked with seasonal beers, cold drinks that still fill you with warmth. At all three DC-area locations, Luke’s will also offer vegetarian mac ’n’ cheese for those with herbivorous friends for just $7.

If you can’t quite wait for the 12th to get some lobster mac in your belly, you have a sneak preview opportunity: Luke’s debuts at the District Flea this Saturday, November 9, and they’ll be dishing the new treat on site at 945 Florida Ave NW from 10-5.”
