There's a reason Luke's Lobster has grown from a single NYC location to a cross-country franchise: Their signature lobster roll is just about perfect, filled with big chunks of knuckle and claw meat, chilled and dressed with lemon butter and spices, then served in a mayo-swiped split-top bun. Get the Taste of Maine sampler — which comes with 1/2 a lobster roll, 1/2 a crab roll, 1/2 a shrimp roll, two crab claws, and sides.

Where: Multiple locations in NYC and across the country
Cost: $24 at most NYC locations
