A Sandwich a Day: Lobster Grilled Cheese at Luke's Lobster

A Sandwich a Day

A new sandwich every day.

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Luke's Lobster has a new item on their winter menu: a Lobster Grilled Cheese ($12). Fresh, tender chunks of sweet lobster meat are strewn across an ample layer of nutty Gruyère cheese melted between two slices of well-buttered and crisped white bread. We love each component on its own, but the cheese and lobster are so rich that the sandwich may benefit from some contrast, such as the cool mayo and spice you find in the lobster roll for $3 more. Still, a warming winter sandwich for a those who embrace shellfish and melty cheese.
