My friend and I went here so I could taste what he thinks is the best lobster roll in NYC. I must say his taste in food is spot on. Mary's is nothing fancy but in my opinion the food is fantastic. I always like to try a little of this and a little of that. So we decided to order a few things and share. It's a good thing because if I had ordered my own lobster roll I wouldn't have been able to eat anything else.
The Lobster Roll was amazing. Large pieces of lobster with a light dressing of mayo and seasoning, but not over done. The bun was perfect and it came with a very tasty and huge side of shoe string french fries. It was rich and filling and everything I always wanted in a lobster roll and cheaper than I expected at $25.
In addition to that we ordered the Flash Fried Silver Hake with Sunflower Sprouts with Cilantro Vinaigrette for $10. Let me tell you, who ever is frying knows what they're doing. I asked about the oil and they told me it was a combination of peanut and canola (FYI anyone with a peanut allergy).
We also shared the Peekytoe Crab Beignets with Key Lime Aioli for $12. These were also fried to perfection. I like beignets so I enjoyed them a lot but I must say I would have preferred a lot more peekytoe in there. While I was eating it I had no idea it was peekytoe crab at all.
This isn't a cheap place to go but they're very friendly. We sat at the bar which I often prefer. The tables are small and looked cramped but they open at 6 and the place fills up within minutes. Worth going and if I lived in the neighborhood I'd be a regular. Unfortunately I keep forgetting to take photos. I'm new at this but I'll get the hang of it.
