Luke's Lobster is Here
"We did the place ourselves," says Grace Needleman, as she points to the old lobster ropes adorning the stairway that lead to the second floor where there's seating for 20. "The floors are all salvage, the wood weathered and warm."
High school friends with Luke Holden (yes, that Luke) from Maine, Grace, along with Ben Conniff busily greet guests with New England Clam Chowder and those famous Lobster Rolls.
Official opening is Thursday, but Tuesday it was friends and family night. As the crowd thickened with Georgetown neighbors, friends from Luke's Lobster in Bethesda and Penn Quarter, and old college friends of Luke (a graduate of Georgetown University) the place took on the ambience of a decades old favorite hangout.
You will not be disappointed. The freshest, juiciest pure claw and knuckle lobster meat on a griddled. top-split bun. Shrimp and crab rolls too.
Welcome back to Georgetown, Luke!
Luke's Lobster is located at 1211 Potomac Street.
