It was a decent lobster roll, but not $28 good. I probably should’ve asked before hand as the lobster roll is marked as “Market Price”.
The use of “M.P.” puts too much power in the hands of restaurants. I understand that used properly, it’s an attempt to bake in a profit margin in case the costs of certain items rise temporarily. That said, if the sea bass marked as M.P. is abundantly available, do you expect restaurants to cut you a break? Think not.
I know for a fact that it’s a great time for lobsters right now. Certain supermarkets are selling lobsters at $3.99 a pound, about half of what it goes for year round. $28 for a lobster roll is just not right. I can get two at Luke’s at this price.
Grey Lady has been on my radar since it opened. I’ve always been a fan of casual seafood shacks that execute a simple menu. Grey Lady has the simple menu, nautical theme, but misses on the execution.
Our oysters arrived after the entree, with no explanation to the variety that was plated. If you pride yourself in sourcing multiple varieties of oysters, an explanation would be appreciated. At $2~$2.50 per piece, the prices are fair but it still quickly adds up.
Fish and chips and lobster roll were solid but not spectacular. It was odd going back to cold food after.
Still, odd I can handle. A $28 lobster roll needs to be spectacular. This was not.
