22 September 2017 – These Philadelphian restaurants and bars have enough lobster to go around for National Lobster Day, this Monday, September 25, including “secret” menu items, Honduran Fire and Ice Lobster, and a Lobster Spaghetti! Come celebrate at the following locations:
1.) Ocean Prime: Although the Lobster Mac and Cheese ($21) is not a regular menu item at Ocean Prime, the off-menu dish remains one of the most popular sides at the Center City seafood and steakhouse. This “secret” add-on is nothing short of cheesy, boasting American, cheddar, Swiss, and parmesan cheeses. Chef Jenn Grosskruger, who says the Lobster Mac and Cheese is her go-to dish when she’s feeling decadent, finishes the gooey goodness with sliced truffle, truffle oil and 3 ounces of delicious poached lobster meat.
