Maine Crustaceans Invade Red Hook! (Get ‘em Before They’re Gone)

Ralph Gorham got back to Brooklyn late last night–his truck packed with ice and about 500 pounds of fresh Maine lobster.  ”These were in the water five hours ago,” he told us as he started unloading the lobsters into his suddenly-hot hole in the wall in Red Hook, the Red Hook Lobster Pound, on Van Brunt Street.

The table-maker turned lobster-runner knows his way around the docks in Maine, and drives up every Thursday, hunting down the freshest and best-looking lobsters you’re likely to find in the City.  Once he’s filled his truck, he hauls it back to Brooklyn, puts the lobsters in tanks, and usually sells out of the entire haul by late Friday.  Why go to Red Hook for lobster?  How does $9 sound?

Gorham admits he’s a little bit crazy, but totally devoted to bringing the best seafood he can find to his ‘hood, and giving families who can’t afford to eat lobster in a restaurant a gourmet meal without leaving them broke.

The catch goes quick–so call ahead to see what’s still swimming in Ralph’s tanks: 646.326.7650.  And watch the site later for a video post on Ralph and his Maine runs and why he’s pickier about your lobster dinner than you are.
