Ambrose Beer and Lobster Gears Up For Winter at the South Street Seaport

The lobster-centric spot is making sure you can enjoy the crustacean all year-long

Ambrose Beer and Lobster

Ambrose Beer and Lobster serves two different kinds of lobster rolls.

With 400 pounds of fresh lobster arriving at their kitchen door every week, the team at Ambrose Beer and Lobster at the South Street Seaport usually has a lot of buns to fill.

There are only two lobster rolls on the menu — Maine and Connecticut — joined by items like lobster bisque, lobster avocado lettuce wraps, and lobster grilled cheese.

Interestingly enough, you won’t find a whole, in-shell crustacean anywhere in the mix.

Jeremy Lieberman, a rep from the Ambrose team, told us that they “found that the majority of our customers want to just relax, have a beer, a lobster roll, and some fries and would rather not ‘work’ to eat their meal. So, we decided that we would do the work for you.”

For those who have shellfish and seafood allergies, there are three hooked-up hot dogs on the menu, New York-, New Jersey-, and Los Angeles-style, with accouterments ranging from bacon to basil.

While the lunch hour crowd is mainly comprised of tourists and finance folks who work nearby, the dinner crowd is a bit more low-key, mostly locals and “creatives” looking to unwind after work.

That plight is made easier on Wednesdays, when the live music starts at 7 p.m. The roster features “New York City street musicians” and other new artists spanning the folk, jazz, and pop genres.

While winter can be a tough time for the Seaport-area businesses, Lieberman feels confident that their support of local initiatives within the seaport and its neighboring schools will help them get through the "tough winter times."

So will a 10 percent discount offered to residents and businesses from 4 to 7 p.m. and 10 til close Monday through Friday.
