Luke’s Lobster opened its fourth location in the DMV today. The Maine-inspired seafood chain’s newest outlet is located near Farragut Square at 800 17th Street NW (entrance on H Street).
Famous for its lobster rolls, Luke’s Lobster also serves crab and shrimp rolls, award-winning New England clam chowder, lobster bisque, a lobster tail salad, and seasonal specials like lobster mac and cheese, seafood grilled cheese, bread bowls, and warm grain bowls
Diners who visit the new Luke’s Lobster, which is the largest of the chain’s local outlets, this weekend will have the opportunity to win free lobster rolls for an entire year.
After New York City, where the chain was started in 2009, Washington, DC is the second largest market for Luke’s Lobster. Its other area outlets are in Penn Quarter, Georgetown, and Bethesda.
Luke’s Lobster’s expansion comes on the heels of the company being certified as a B Corp. This certification is only available to for-profit companies that meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
In addition to its new status as a B Corp, Luke’s Lobster also recently became an official partner of The Ocean Foundation. Since its founding by Luke Holden, a Maine native and third generation lobsterman, Luke’s Lobster has been committed to preserving fisheries and serving sustainable seafood.
