7 Places to Pair Your Drink With Lobster in Brooklyn & Queens

There's no season like lobster season. While you're enjoying the last days of summer (and relishing being able to stand outside for more than 10 minutes at a time), consider pairing your drink of choice with lobster — be it for for lunch, brunch or dinner.

Lobster Joint: While there are plenty of restaurants that offer booze and seafood, few offer the two together. Whether it's a Lobster Bloody Mary or an oyster shooter with vodka, this shack does all the mixing for you. (1073 Manhattan Ave, Brooklyn; 718-389-8990). 

Littleneck: Though the restaurant is named after a clam, it's famous for lobster rolls. Done Maine style with big chunks of meat and a drizzle of butter, the roll makes a perfect pairing with the impressive draft beer selection — or just snag a can of 'Gansett for $4. (288 3rd Ave, Brooklyn; 718-522-1921).

Brooklyn Fish Camp: Whether you want your lobster grilled, boiled, chilled, in a chowder or served on a roll, this spot has you covered. Bonus: on Mondays, you can score a bottle of red or white wine with the meal for just $20 (162 5th Ave, Brooklyn; 718-783-3264). 

Randazzo's Clam Bar: Leave the hip lobster shacks to the less-informed and head to this Sheepshead Bay staple for Lobster Randazzo. Yes, you get the whole lobster, but even better, you get shrimp, clams and pasta with it, too (2017 Emmons Ave  Brooklyn; 718-615-0010). 

SoCo: The lobster, shrimp and grits here are not to be missed. Plus, after a few brunch cocktails, you'll easily forget that you paid $25 for the dish (509 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn; 718-783-1936). 

Walter's: Lobster salad here is a go-to brunch standby. With citrus vinaigrette and grapefruit, it's a perfect partner for a breezy cocktail (166 Dekalb Ave, Brooklyn; 718-488-7800). 

Imperial Palace: Whether you find seeing your potential dinner swimming around in a tank comforting (you know it's fresh!) or slightly disturbing, there's no doubt that this spot does seafood right. Dungeness crab with sticky rice might be one of the signatures, but don't forget the "two lobsters," with ginger and scallion sauce. Goes down perfectly with one of the light lagers on offer (13613 37th Ave, Flushing; 718-939-3501).
