Everything about Luke's Lobster is appealing. Even though the UWS location is very small, they've managed to decorate the space so that you literally feel like you're eating in one of those lobster shack on a pier off the coast of Maine. The menu is limited in that the main dishes are simply fresh Lobster Rolls, Crab Rolls and Shrimp Rolls. You can get simple sides like chowder, crab claws and kettle chips and bottles of Maine-brewed beer too. The rolls are the real deal - buttered and toasted New England-style split top bun w/ a swipe of mayo. The Lobster Roll is ALL FRESH LOBSTER MEAT. There's no imitation meat in this restaurant and nd, that's why you'll feel like you're paying a lot of money for something that takes only 4-5 bites to finish. But, I have eaten rolls that cost $32 dollars or more so, these are bargains. This spot is perfect for a quick, a la carte sandwich for lunch or for a bite on your way out to a concert. There's minimal seating so, plan accordingly.
I've heard about this place but never actually tried it before. I'm glad I finally did. I've always preferred Chinese over Thai or Indian, but I love spicy and my friend says it's one of her favorite restaurants. Amazing soup and appetizers, dishes are very decent in size and the waiter was very helpful at giving suggestions. I loved the Chicken Vinderloo and at my friends suggestion had the mixed grill. What a treat! Even the desserts were wonderful! I will be back.
BEST KOSHER RESTAURANT and now OPEN FOR LUNCH!!! I had the great news that Tevere Restaurant now opens for lunch. I went last week with three other mothers after a long meeting we had at out kids school. We had a great time! Been there many times for dinner but it was my first for lunch and we enjoyed it so much that we decided to go again pretty soon. The lunch menu was different from the dinner one and the quality of the food was excellent (as usual).
