Lobster Joint Brands 201 East Houston

Posted on: November 30th, 2012 at 6:48 am by

In the wake of its recent closure, ladder-bound contractors scrubbed away the remnants of Lina Frey last weekend with their handheld sanders. The pseudo al-fresco dining concept called it quits in early October amidst news that a Lobster shop had pincered 201 East Houston Street. It was a slow fade-out, beginning with listings of the business on the open market earlier this year. Nevertheless, work on the replacement followed shortly thereafter, and seemingly with brisk progress.

Now the Greenpoint-based Lobster Joint has officially planted its flag onsite – tacky red marquee lettering on white backdrop. Its arrival marks the 23,455th seafood spot to open on the Lower East Side within the last year. The trend is showing few signs of slowing.

Meanwhile, proprietors are holding an open call for house staff. According to a recent Craigslist ad, pretty much all positions are sought for the restaurant (kitchen crew, bartenders, waiters, etc). And apparently the Lobster Joint will open sometime in December.

Jarmulowsky Bank Hotel Conversion Issued Full Stop-Work Order After ‘Concrete Incident’

Conversion of the landmark Jarmulowsky Bank Building to shi-shi hotel hit a major roadblock this week. As we first reported, scaffolding came loose from 54 Canal Street early Monday morning.
