Eds. Vs. Luke's

After watching the battle of NYC lobster restaurants on an episode of Food Feuds (Ed's won) I decided to test them out myself. I guess Michael Symon and I have a few differences of opinion, but both Ed's and Luke's serve very decent lobster rolls.

For a quick analysis:

Ed's is:
-Twice as big
-Twice as expensive
-Lots more mayo
-Includes shredded tail meat
-Tastes more lemon-y than lobster-y

Luke's is:
-Smaller and cheaper
-More Maine-authentic (claws only)
-Includes a combo with a soda
-Purer in taste

For something quick, the Urban Lobster Shack is always ok. It's more in Ed's camp in terms of style. And only $10!

Alright, so none of these are even close to Lobster in the Rough, but I gotta get through the next few months of fall and winter somehow.
