From a press release:

“Starting May 1st, Luke himself will have the chance to greet newcomers, as well as office regulars, to that same station. Luke’s Lobster will be taking over a concession cart in the famed Outdoor Market, right outside the station’s doors.

Luke’s will be dishing its signature fresh, sustainable Maine lobster rolls, crab rolls, and shrimp rolls to the hungry masses at lunch time, and to the weary commuters starting their trek home in the evening. For the first time, Luke’s will even be open to the breakfast crowd, starting at 7 am. They’ll be selling direct trade cold-brew iced coffee from Vigilante, DC’s favorite local roaster, and are also experimenting with some delicious breakfast options sure to brighten up your walk to the office (you’ll have to visit to see what the test kitchen has come up with).

The team is honored and excited for the opportunity to hock its wares in such a historic site where so many great vendors, large and small, have gone before them. And since they travel back and forth between DC, New York, Philly, and Maine so often, they know as well as anyone how rewarding it will be to have a fantastic, fresh meal as your light at the end of the tunnel.
Luke’s at Union Station Outdoor market will be open Monday through Saturday, 7 am to 7 pm, May 1 through October 31.”

    Of all the lobster rolls I’ve tried in the DC area, Luke’s has the best quality of actual lobster in it. I’m pretty excited about this development. I could definitely devour a warm buttermilk biscuit with warm lobster served Connecticut style filling it up.

  • Not at all the fault of the PofP, but whoever wrote this news release needs a vocab lesson. If they’re hocking their wares, they’re pawning them, which wouldn’t be very good for either the lobsters or customers. The word looked for is “hawk” –Luke’s Lobster will be hawking its food in the outdoor food cart area.
