The Red Hook Lobster Pound, like many other businesses in the area, got wiped out by Hurricane Sandy. Not only were most of the restaurant and supplies damaged, but Big Red (their food truck) was put out of commission permanently.
Most of the Red Hook businesses have decided to rebuild, and in their case, also buy a new truck.
Friday was their first day back with the new Big Red, and we caught up to them on 49th St between 6th & 7th Ave, where a line of about 12-15 people were ahead of us.
We’ve already had most of the items on the menu, but wanted to welcome them back and say hello to Susan, one of the owners who was working the line.
Upon looking at the menu, we realized the Tuscan Lobster Roll was never reviewed on NYSF, so that gave us something new to try. It cost $16.
