Lobstercraft Kitchen rocks lobster with their new menu! Darien, CT

Back in June of 2012 when we broke the news about the Lobstercraft food truck coming to Fairfield County, lobster fanatics across Fairfield County and beyond went crazy! In the years that followed, their killer good lobster rolls and other deliciousness like lobster and kielbasa mac & cheese packed full of claw meat brought them a TON of success. So much in fact, they had to get a second truck just to keep up with all the festivals, events, and whatnot. Then that did so well they opened up a brick and mortar shop right in Darien (and even another permanent spot at 1 Penn Plaza).

We went once a few months back and were invited recently by Captain Mike, Trond, and the crew to try out some of the new items on the menu. While people love their classic food truck items, we were happy to see they were adding some fun new items to keep people interested and wanting to come in again and again.

LobsterCraft Cafe claws its way into SoNo Marketplace

30 Oct

Dateline OmNomCT.

June 5, 2012.  A local food blog, OmNomCT, broke the news that a food truck was soon to open that would be serving up fresh lobster rolls.  Later that month, that same food blog tracked down the newly opened food truck, LobsterCraft, at the Rowayton’s Farmers’ Market.  They sampled not one, not two, but three different lobster rolls that Captain Mike Harden and co. had created.  Interesting, they thought, that Captain Mike catches many of the lobsters that he serves off of his own boat.

Little did OmNomCT know (or the rest of Connecticut for that matter) that this was the start of a force that would sweep not only Fairfield County, but the entire Nutmeg state.  Soon, LobsterCraft was showing up at fairs, festivals, breweries, parking lots, and even at people’s houses for parties.  Praise after praise, award after award, Captain Mike and crew grew exponentially week after week

And now LobsterCraft is anchoring itself down (but the truck will still be around, don’t worry) on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at the SoNo Marketplace with the opening of the LobsterCraft Cafe.  You can expect the same lobster rolls that they are known for such as the LBLT and the Heatwave, their handcrafted coleslaw, the heart-warming lobster bisque that they have also become known for, and more.

The first day that they’ll be open is this Friday, 11/1/13.  Captain Mike Harden reports that the band The Short Bus will be on hand Saturday night to celebrate this addition to SoNo Marketplace.  He was quoted as saying that he was excited about the opening and was happy to see some of the changes that are in store for the SoNo Marketplace such as an expanded bar area and new restaurants.  

This has been Dateline OmNomCT reporting.

Lobstercraft Scuttles into Two Roads Brewery Saturday – Stratford, CT

6 Feb

Update:  because of the snow storm, the brewery was closed. BUT, Lobstercraft will be at Two Roads tomorrow…that’s 2/23, 3-7.  

Ummmmm, yeah…we hobnob.  We have hobnob degrees, you know?  Bachelor of Arts in Hobnobbing, Masters in Hobnobbing, and PhD. in Hobnobbing too.  We mentioned some of our favorite food trucks in the area and reached out to some of them, too.  Surely someone could rescue Two Roads Brewing from their culinary conundrum!  See, almost every Saturday from 3-7 they invite a food truck into their parking lot, right by the brewery entrance.  We went about a month ago when Fryborg was there and trust us, “Resistance is Futile.”  Seriously great fries and sandwiches…but more on that in a later post.
