Best Deals on Lobster in Central Mass

Saturday, July 14, 2012

 

A lobster dinner from The Sole Proprietor.

Lobster prices have hit historic lows lately, so now is the best time to indulge in this summer favorite. The succulent shellfish is selling for as low as $1.50 a pound in some areas, and several restaurants and grocery stores are offering tasty lobster, now at a lower price.

Check out some of the ways you can enjoy lobster in Worcester.

The Sole Proprietor
188 Highland Street, Worcester, MA
508-798-3474

As one of the higher-end dining options in Worcester, you may not expect to find affordable lobster at The Sole Proprietor. While the $20 lobster salad sandwich may be a little pricey for lunch, a delicious $10 lobster ravioli is an absolute steal. The Sole Proprietor also offers steamed lobsters, ranging anywhere from $22 for 1.5 pounds, to $44 for a massive 2.5 pounds of shellfish.

Two special lobster dishes are also offered. The Lobster Newburg is 1.5 pounds of lazy lobster meat baked with Newburg sauce and Ritz cracker crumbs. The Sesame Lobster Stir Fry is an Asian spin with teriyaki sauce served over linguini.

Peppercorn's Grille and Tavern
455 Park Avenue, Worcester, MA
508-752-7711

If you're looking for variety, nobody in Central Mass has more lobster options than Peppercorn's during their "Lobster Mania" special every Wednesday and Thursday during dinner hours.

The lobster club sandwich is just one of the many creative dishes offered at Peppercorn's "Lobster Mania."

Peppercorn's offers 10 different lobster dishes, all for the low price of $15.

From a lobster club sandwich and lobster tacos, to lobster pizza and lobster mac & cheese, there is something for absolutely every taste (assuming you like lobster). If you're not at Peppercorn's during Lobster Mania, the restaurant still offers some of its lobster specialties, along with a fantastic lobster and haddock cardinale (a casserole with sherry, lobster infused butter cream and parmesan cheese) for under $20.

Ceres at the Beechwood Hotel
363 Plantation Street, Worcester, MA
508-754-2000

Make your way over to the luxurious Ceres Bistro located inside the Beechwood Hotel for a pair of delicious lobster dishes. Ceres offers a new "Lobster Pot" each night. Inside the pot you will fine a whole lobster, Maine steamers, mussels, corn on the cob and linguica (smoke cured pork sausage).

If you're more of a lobster purist, order Ceres' "Lazy" whole butter poached lobster. This giant shellfish comes with a ton of trimmings, including kalamata olives, red rice pilaf, roasted plum tomatoes and a fresh tomato vinaigrette.

Lobster at Home

If you don't feel like eating out and want to save a little money, grocery stores in Worcester also have lobster at low prices. A pair of shops on West Boylston Street will even help you out with the tricky and, let's face it, annoying preparation.  

Shaw's has seen its lobster prices drop over the past month, and now offer smaller "chicken lobsters" for $5.99. If you're a bit hungrier, grab a full sized lobster for $7.99, and Shaw's will even steam it and crack the claws for you.

At Stop and Shop,  prices have remained steady, and range from $7.99 for "chicken lobsters" to $9.99 for their largest selections. They will also steam those lobsters up for you, to spare your house the smell, and offer a variety of other frozen and fresh seafood to compliment whatever you're making.
