Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex on Clinton Shutters

Posted on: October 9th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

Making the rounds last week was a real estate listing that had Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex on the open market. The business at 25 Clinton Street remains for sale, carrying a price tag of $265,000 in key money. So-called “lobstah love” dried up. Indeed, this week it’s curtains for the fourteen-month-old seafood shack.

The gates have been shuttered the past few days, and calls to headquarters confirm the demise. This latest Clinton closure comes on the heels of losing the decade-old 1492 restaurant.

  • Clinton

    Along with 1492 and Ed’s Lobster, the space that housed Frankies and the short-lived Francesca is now up for rent. Hopefully losing all of these restaurants at once isn’t an opening for the street to turn Ludlow. All of the restaurants on Clinton have been a calm, comparably livable contrast to the screaming and chaos west of Essex.

  • Old Man

    Completely agree. I love what Clinton St has become and if it should ever dive into the utter embarrassment ‘Hell Square’ has become, well shoot us now.

  • Resident

    The management at Ed’s were not very nice at all. For a restaurant that had very few customers, they didn’t make many feel welcome. Hopefully something better and more neighborhood friendly will take it’s place.

  • ed ;s is overpriced especially for that neighborhood.
