Lobster Place is a seafood experience like no other. Inside our Chelsea Market
space you’ll find a top-notch fresh seafood counter, raw bar, sushi bar and fresh
steamed lobsters to stay or to go – not to mention our Michelin-acclaimed
Cull and Pistol Oyster Bar. We’ve been pioneering unique seafood experiences
since 1974 when we first brought live lobster to NYC directly from the Maine coast –
and a visit to our Chelsea Market outlet will show you the latest unforgettable
chapter in that 45+ year story. And while you're in the neighborhood, don't forget to
check out our latest outpost, The Galley, located at Pier 57.
We’ve thrived through 2 generations of family ownership because of our commitment to being good stewards
of our community, our resources, and the environment. We’ve partnered with the organizations below to
achieve our goals for a sustainable seafood resource and a clean, resilient environment.
Lobster Place is an ardent supporter of the Billion Oyster Project, an organization dedicated to restoring New York Harbor oyster beds
and educating young people about the ecology and economy of their marine environment. Lobster Place Wholesale Seafood operates the
BOP Shell Collection Program, collecting shells from over 70 NYC restaurants and markets, including the Lobster Place Seafood Market which
donates 1,500 lbs. of oyster shells each week, making it one of the program's largest partners.
The Ocean Wise seafood program helps ensure healthy oceans for generations to come. By partnering with Ocean Wise,
we’re committed to promoting sustainable seafood across our business. The Ocean Wise symbol next to a
seafood item is an assurance of an ocean-friendly seafood choice.
The Shellfish Growers Climate Coalition (SGCC) is a partnership between shellfish growers, seafood distributors and restaurants across the United States and The Nature Conservancy to inspire climate action now. Our businesses are inextricably linked to vibrant, healthy marine ecosystems and collectively with over 150 member operations from Alaska to Florida, we’re dedicated to bringing about climate policy action by sharing our stories of how climate change is already harming our operations, businesses, and communities.
