Back on Apr. 4th I shared some very sweet scuttlebutt that Luke’s Lobster Shack was coming to 622 E St, NW in Penn Quarter. So it turns out I was wrong by one storefront. They are coming to 624 E St, NW according to Washingtonian:
Last night, New York-based Luke’s Lobster co-owners Ben Conniff and Luke Holden signed a lease and secured permits for a 700-square-foot space at 624 E Street, Northwest, in DC’s Penn Quarter. They hope to open by the end of May.
The menu will be a carbon copy of the one at the three locations in New York City, which in addition to a lobster roll, includes New England clam chowder and lobster bisque from the Maine-based company Hurricane’s Soups, Maine Root soda, and Empress crab claws.
