When the Lobster Joint bid farewell to its Lower East Side location, it was a dual announcement of sorts. Before departing, the seafood eatery painted a message to keep a lookout for the food truck of same. That day has arrived.

The branded Lobster Joint truck (aka “Lobster Joint Mobile“) officially came ashore two weeks ago, anchoring itself at different spots each day. We spotted the team idling on Broadway near Prince Street in SoHo.

As previously reported, the Lobster Joint was booted not by a terrible water main break, but by the Sledgehammer himself, Ben Shaoul. The controversial landlord-developer purchased the corner of Orchard and East Houston for an undisclosed sum. Together with the air rights acquired from Katz’s Deli last summer, the Sledgehammer is on the precipice of constructing a ten-story building here. The mixed-use tumor boasts 94,923 square-feet of residential area and a commercial footprint of 13,463 square-feet. There will be 83 dwelling units and community facility space for a “physical culture establishment.”
