I was totally off my game this Mothers’ Day. I don’t know what I was doing all last week, but before I knew it, it was Saturday at 7 pm, and I was like “Aaah, reservations!!!”
So, I called up Havana, only to find out that, of course, they were all booked for Mothers’ Day. (Dunkin Donuts had to substitute. *insert sad face*)
Luckily, my mother was already making dinner plans for my grandmother, so we headed over to the Lobster Box. This was my second time going there, you can actually read about my first by clicking here. [TL;DR I went for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday, it was fun. I liked it.]
This time, of course, we didn’t have a prix fixe menu, so I got to see the actual prices of everything. If this were Yelp, I’d give it two dollar signs. It was super crowded (did you hear about that traffic?! Two hours from Castle Hill to City Island. It’s like the whole borough was going out to CI), so our waiter wasn’t as attentive as he could have been. I got the filet of sole, which was okay. I thought it was a little bland, but everyone else at the table enjoyed their dishes. We also ordered a caraffe of white wine sangria that was very good.
Verdict: It’s a nice, spacious restaurant with decent food, just avoid high traffic days.
