Lobster ME offers Maine-style lobster rolls, tacos, lobster on waffles, lobster mac and cheese and a number of other lobster-infused fast casual dishes.
It will open in late October next to the Cava Mezze Grill also coming to Westfield Montgomery’s new Dining Terrace — the section added on to the mall’s food court.
The restaurant is embarking on a major national expansion from its two Las Vegas shops and popular Las Vegas food truck. That expansion will start in Bethesda, where Westfield Montgomery has brought in a host of new fast casual and full-service eateries as part of a $90 million renovation and expansion project.
Lobster ME’s attention-grabbing item is the “Lobsicle,” a grilled or battered lobster tail on a stick for $14.
In a press release, Lobster ME CEO Jeffrey Fine said the restaurant hopes to incorporate Maryland crab into the Bethesda menu. The mall location will be built using preserved old growth timber, straight from the Penobscot River in Maine.
It’ll be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. during the week and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekend.
