August 28, 2018

A LA CARTE; Fulfilling a Fantasy While Eating Lobster

June 25, 2000 By Richard Jay Scholem
EATING lobster near the water, under blue skies, in a lovely landscaped garden, at diner-like prices, sounds like a fantasy, especially on Long Island.

It's a reality on an inlet of Reynolds Channel. There, diners savor summer at a charming seaside spot with a view of the Long Beach Bridge. They pay $12.95 for a superfresh Maine lobster with corn on the cob, coleslaw and potato chips or, better yet, $29.95 for three one-and-a-quarter pounders with two ears of corn, potato chips, coleslaw and pickles.

Five years ago, Jordan Lobster Farms, at 1 Pettit Place in Island Park (516-889-3314), a major distributor of Maine lobsters for a quarter of a century, opened a lobster bar.

A lobster that spent 95 years in the sea was a sight to behold when it was finally captured.

The mammoth, 23-pound shellfish was finally captured and sent to a Long Island restaurant where it's been a big talking point for the owner and his customers for the past week.

Steve Jordan, owner of Jordan Lobster Farms seafood restaurant and market in Island Park, told the Daily News he got a heads up about the surprising catch by the fisherman who nabbed the large crustacean in the Bay of Fundy in Canada.

But he was not prepared for what was delivered to his business.
