Stuck in the city? Don't fear, the best New England lobster is near! The Zephyr Grill, located in the landmark Beekman Tower Hotel, is serving up New York's favorite summertime meal with "The Maine Event," a fresh lobster with all the trimmings now through September.
The warm weather feast begins with a choice of either homemade soup or a garden salad. The star attraction -- a one-and-a-half-pound lobster -- is served with traditional accompaniments of steamed potatoes and corn on the cob. For dessert, guests enjoy American strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. Best of all, this meal is a steal at $19.99, every Wednesday and Thursday evening. Beverages, tax and gratuities are additional.
Named after the streamlined passenger trains of the 1930s in tribute to the hotel's history, the Zephyr Grill provides a rare treat in modern day Manhattan -- a moderately priced restaurant and bar in a classic art deco environment. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily in addition to a prix fixe Sunday brunch.
