Luke’s Lobster in Soma is a solid spot to check out when you want to break up the monotony of lunch at work. This is a mini-chain from New York that specializes in east coast seafood, like clam chowder and - you guessed it - lobster rolls. The lobster in the rolls is chilled and served with butter in a New England-style, top-split hot dog bun. They’ll run you about $20, but you’re actually getting a lot of lobster for what you pay. Is it a little goofy? Yes. Do you really need to eat lobster for lunch? Probably not. But if you miss the east coast or wore a thick turtleneck to work, you could find yourself in the not-so-common mood for a lobster roll, and Luke’s has you covered.
