In case you haven’t heard, one of the best places to get your fish fix lies just minutes from campus at Luke’s Lobster! The cozy, New England stylized restaurant first opened its doors in October 2009 after Georgetown alum Luke Holden (MSB’07), saw a need for some fresh lobster, crab, and shrimp rolls at a great price (cue mouth watering).
Hailing from Maine, the fishiest state on the East coast, Luke knew the secret to crafting the perfect roll, successfully opening up restaurants in New York City with the help of his dad Jeff and business partner Ben Coffin. The fish was such a hit that restaurant goers began to start referring to themselves as “Lobsta Mobstas.” Take that, Tony Soprano.
After the major success in the Big Apple, Luke decided to return to his college roots and give Georgetown another eatery. The lobster rolls at Luke’s are served Maine style: “the seafood is served chilled on a toasted split-top bun with just a bit of mayo, a drizzle of lemon butter and a dash of our secret spices.”
To make things even better, Luke’s will now be hosting Student Days every Tuesday. On Student Days, Hoyas will automatically receive a 10% discount all.day.long. But wait, there’s more. To kick off the Student Days, Luke is giving all Georgetown students a 30% discount TODAY so get your behinds over there (1211 Potomac Street NW) and get some great food!!!
Now that you’re hooked, BRING IN THE DANCING LOBSTAS!
