East Boat Lobster Relocates from Kenmare to Mott

Posted on: June 4th, 2010 at 6:12 am by

The under-the-radar, yet popular East Boat Lobster Restaurant recently vacated 72 Kenmare Street. It no longer fits in with the glitz. Deemed New York’s “weirdest eatery” by the Post back in 2001, the decades-old banquet hall now adorns a ginormous “for rent” sign over its classic green signage. But, rest easy, all is not lost.

Earlier this week, East Boat Lobster relocated deep into Chinatown, at 11 Mott Street (near Worth).  The new spot is actually below street level, and carries a slightly modified name – Lobster Boat Restaurant.

With the advent of numerous high-end restaurants along Kenmare in recent years, we should likely expect more of the same for number 72.  This length of real estate is now a new restaurant row, dominated by trendy spots like Travertine, Kenmare, the forthcoming Nolitan, and La Esquina. Not to mention the new sub-level No. 7 venture just off the strip at 168 Elizabeth.
