Note that this review for mostly just for the sushi and the fish market The Lobster Place is a lifesaver for me. First reason is for my diet. I've more or less cut all junk food out of my diet to get healthier and I've had some pretty good results over the last few months. Being able to get fresh, reasonably priced fish here is a big reason for that. Seriously, this place is much cheaper than the supermarkets and artisans fish stores I've been to if you know what to buy. Also if you come often and watch the prices fluctuate, you can get great deal (ex. $10/lb for Haddock sometimes). That's in addition to the quality and variety of the fish available; I especially love it when they have Mako (shark) in. Second reason I love this place is the sushi. Chelsea Market has a few options for a reasonably priced lunch, but because of my diet it's best I don't eat some of those options (although I do love Los Tacos No.1). Enter the brown rice sushi here, which is great and affordable ($5.25 for a spicy salmon roll). Bad thing there is unless you want to have to ask them to make it fresh, you have to get there before 1pm or risk the case being sold out. Even so, this is a minor gripe. The biggest issue here is all the tourists that crowd the place and yet many don't buy anything. That's an issue for Chelsea Market in general but especially here where the aisles are narrow. If you can deal with this persistent nuisance--or just go in the morning or at night--then this is a must-hit if you want fish in this area.

Favorite place in the NYC. Best kept secret for sashimi as well. Love their lobster bisque. Very filling and hearty-tasting. I've tried all the other soups here and I think this is the best. The whole store smells SUPER fishy, but you'll get used to the smell. Everyone's very friendly. I don't know if I should disclose this secret because I don't think many people know about this but.... My usual routine is go to the sushi counter to buy the sushi rice, go to the fish area to buy $5 worth of salmon/tuna/hamachi and ask them to slice it smaller/sashimi style. Then pay for the rice and the fish and ask for a plastic container and packets of soy sauce. Bring the plastic container to the sushi counter to ask for wasabi and ginger. And then an amazing, fresh, and cheap meal awaits you! p.s. saw rachael ray here :O

Ordering shellfish from the rawbar can be hit or miss depending on who your shucker is. They aren't the greatest about keeping your order in order so that you can identify all the oysters on your cardboard platter. But they have a wonderful selection including several west coast varieties. I love being able to swing by here for pomp-less oysters and watching them go from iced bivalves to the halfshell on your plate (as opposed to fighting the crowds at oyster happy hours elsewhere, or otherwise going through a whole restaurant ordeal) and a $5 beer. The uni is soooo buttery and pumpkin orange fresh. Yum!

Ordered a small Lobster Bisque $3.95, pay and self serve on the side with soup pots. Looks really good, sounds really good, smelled really good. When I exited and sat down near a park to eat it, it tasted like melted sweet cream with bread crumbs and microscopic little bitty pieces of lobster leftover meat. I felt so ripped off and seems like I was just eatting warm cream that's filled with melted bread and maybe imitation crab meat to be passed as lobster meat. Don't fall for the soup or bique, maybe I shall dare try the lobster roll next time, but this place seems like a tourist trap. Skip this place!!

As the name reveals, that's where you'll go for lobsters! Now if lobsters are not your thing, do not hesitate visiting as they have great sushi and other seafood available for either take away or sit in.

Great seafood. You'll have to stand to eat but it's worth it. Everything I tried was incredible.
