Lobster Joint’s menu features classic New England-style comfort food, as well as other traditional international seafood offerings.
Lobster Joint’s menu specials rotate based upon supply, emphasizing freshness, quality and seasonality.
Our cocktail list utilizes simple, quality ingredients that would be typically found in any seafood shack, and our service style is based on traditional window service found at many seaside seafood restaurants. Additionally, we offer bar/counter service for fast and casual dining and cocktails.
The heavily anticipated restaurant set to take the place of the recently closed Lamb & Jaffey, The Lobster Joint is set to open tomorrow! The interior has a definite white-washed New England vibe going on and the menu is chock full of comforting seafood choices like lobster rolls, crab cake sandwiches, lobster mac n’ cheese, fish and chips, and more. – via Brooklyn Based
This is one of the most exciting new openings to come to Greenpoint lately and I plan to check it out right after the holiday weekend!

For native New Yorkers, this might be (another) hard Super Bowl to endure as the Patriots are (once again) competing. But if you want to watch Maroon 5 perform while a major sporting event happens to surround it, Greenpointers has a few suggestions of places to go to. Kick off is at 6:30 p.m., so be sure to saddle up early to claim a spot at one of the locales below:
Watch the Big Game at Schimanski in Williamsburg on SuperBowl Sunday beginning at 4 PM.

Arguably, food and comfort are two of life’s finest pleasures. This makes Slick Willie another one! Willies is so cozy that it’s known to locals as ‘the living room’ and their menu matches up. Offerings represent the diversity of Brooklyn from tempura-style Kansas City BBQ ribs to chorizo-hash eggs benedict over Johnny cakes. Continue reading →
It’s no secret that NYC burgers have become a bit of a luxury item. Foodie culture and “chef-driven” menus have made $20+ burgers the rule rather than the exception. But there’s no need to despair; the budget-conscious among us can still find some awesome burger-related deals if we know where to look. Fortunately for us North Brooklynites, our neighborhood’s got plenty of specials that include both the burger and its natural partner: a cold, crisp beer. Behold, the Top Burger And Beer Deals of Greenpoint (and sure, North Williamsburg too):
Although we still miss Franklin Street’s dearly-departed Cassette, we have to say: Threes Brewing is killing it at the pop-up game. Their open-ended residency in the space, Threes at Franklin + Kent, is the ideal spot to meet up with friends and grab a bite and a high-quality brew, and while they started their run with a snack-only food menu, they’ve since expanded into sandwich and burger territory. Their partnership with Purslane Catering lets them serve up substantial dishes that pair beautifully with their draft offerings, and they’ve built some very appealing deals into the menu. Our personal favorite has to be the Burgers + Beer Special ($12), available Monday-Friday from 5-7pm. You’ll get a grilled beef burger with Fontina cheese and caramelized onions on a Sullivan Street Bakery brioche bun, plus a side of smashed potatoes and an 11 oz pour of a Threes draft beer. Because it’s a pop-up, we know that Threes At Franklin + Kent may one day vanish as magically and suddenly as it appeared…but with a happy hour situation like that, we’re keeping our fingers and toes crossed for a long stay.Continue reading →
Experimental film and art venue Light Industryis located on Freeman Street, on the bottom floor in an unassuming apartment building on this tree-lined Greenpoint street. The movie theatre is led by a hearty team of two: co-founders Thomas Beard and Ed Halter curate the programming, cultivate the audiences, and maintain the performance space.
The space itself at Light Industry is white-walled and welcoming. Its simple appearance falls in line with the company’s ethos. “We have a very approachable space,” says Halter. “It feels modest, it feels like it is human scale — both Thomas and I feel inspired by the DIY scene.” Beard says that the screening room is a cinema reduced to its most essential values, with a white projection surface, a grid of folding chairs, and a couple of speakers. The screening room can accommodate up to 75 people. The theatre’s small team paired with its intimate space bring audiences closer to the programming. A patron once said that the experience of visiting Light Industry is like going to a film nerd’s basement. And that’s just what Beard and Halter were going for.Continue reading →
It’s summer. It’s Friday. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you’re currently enjoying a Summer Friday, a wonderful work perk that affords you a little work/life balance. If you have the whole day off, you might have headed to Five Leaves for a chill breakfast without the weekend crowd or to Acme for Fish Fridays (that cooler is a godsend during hot summer months). After lounging in the park, taking a small nap, and/or any of the other hundred things that make summer Fridays so delicious, you’ll want to get in on those happy hours you usually miss out on.Continue reading →
