I tried out Ben’s new “Underground Lobster Pound” the other night. It’s a secret Brooklyn underground spot where you can get a lobster roll at night. Usually around 5-10pm …and after hours he can slide you a roll through the mail slot. Dang, I don’t know if I just gave away too much information. Anyway the lobster roll was really awesome. There was a lot of fresh meat on that sucker. Ben then proceeded to cook up several live lobster in front of us for future rolls and bisque (which is available tonight if you’re quick enough to find out where it is). Right now it’s close company that have access, so he doesn’t get shut down (at least so soon). You can contact him on his site Brooklyn Chowder Surfer to inquire. Don’t be shy.
I hope you guys get to try it, because it’s really good, he’s a great guy and you’re getting something homemade from a celebrity chef here –Throwdown with Bobby Flay: Chowder episode, organizer of the Brooklyn Fishing Derby, guest on Martha Stewart Living, Heritage Radio host – “Catch It, Cook It, Eat It”

Also here’s a nice tip Ben shared with us on pulling out the lobster tail meat.
