Brownstoner previously reported the news that Red Hook's Lobster Pound would open this summer at 284 Van Brunt Street. It's run by Susan Povich and Ralph Gorham, who, every week, drive up to Maine and come back with a load of fresh shellfish for sale. Which sounds like a great job to me.
Now Sarah Schmerler reports on her new blog that Gorham is "about to install a kitchen and serve Lobster Rolls to passers-by for $13 a pop," which is kinda really extremely exciting, at least to a Clam Shack junkie like me.
Gorham is apparently a woodworker by trade. He has his shop next door. He builds furniture out of recycled wood in his shop. He actualy built the wooden, rubber-lined tubs which hold the lobsters.
No arrival date yet for the rolls. Hurry, guys. I have no money for a New England vacation this year. So bring the Clam Shack to me!
