We Love You, Lobster: How We’re Celebrating National Lobster Day

We can think of a bunch of reasons why we love lobster: The perfect balance of sweet and savory. Rich, but delicate. Flavorful and delicious in any form. And while we’d like to think every day is National Lobster Day at Buckhead Life, we’ll never complain about an extra excuse to enjoy this beloved seafood. We’re celebrating with two new menus, plus classic menu items from your favorite spots.

The Atlanta Fish Market is no stranger to delicious seafood, but this year, we’ve raised the stakes. To celebrate National Lobster Day, we’ve released a brand-new, lobster-exclusive menu, available all summer long. Whether you like it steamed & cracked, dipped in butter, stuffed, or fried & served with a juicy steak, the lobster choices are plentiful. Each lobster entrée is only 39.95, plus a choice of family-style sides for only $6 additional. *Offer begins June 15 thru August 31.

If you haven’t tried our newest concept, Lobster Bar Sea Grille Miami Beach, we’re giving you the perfect excuse (not that you need one, have you seen our GLOWING, five-star reviews?!): We’re kicking off a brand new menu, Lobster Bar Date Night! Designed for sharing, you may choose from two of our most iconic lobster dishes, the Jumbo, 4lb. Lobster ($99) or The Ultimate Surf & Turf for Two ($136). Don’t be fooled by the name of the menu, either – this menu is perfect for sharing with anyone who loves lobster as much as you do, date or no date! *Offer begins June 15 thru August 31.

And now, for a spotlight on our trusty, go-to favorites.

Chops Lobster Bar (Atlanta, Boca Raton) created some of Buckhead Life’s most iconic lobster dishes. We’re talking Fried Lobster Tails, the gloriously rich Lobster Mash, and of course, the off-menu treasure, Lobster Mac. There are more than a few ways to enjoy your lobster, and don’t forget a USDA prime steak on the side!

City Fish Market is your spot for the Lobster Roll! A shining star on our lunch menu, lobster is served on a toasted New England bun and served alongside perfectly cooked Maryland Fries. It’s definitely the kind of lunch break you deserve.

Finally, there’s Lobster Bar Sea Grille Fort Lauderdale. Try the Lobster Morsels – bite-sized lobster, lightly fried and served with honey-mustard aioli for dipping. If you like your lobster with a little kick, the Chili Lobster is calling your name. Sweet lobster is balanced with a mild, spicy chili butter and served on toast. Trust us, this is one creative approach you’ll love.

No matter which spot you choose to satisfy your summer lobster cravings, it’s safe to say we’ve got the lobster perfect for everyone. Bon Appétit!

Bobby Asare is Changing Wine Culture One Glass at a Time

Bobby Asare is not your average beverage director.

He’s shaking things up in the beverage world by taking a fresh approach to wine. He’s looking in history books to decide what’s in your next glass, he’s orchestrating six-course champagne dinners, and most shockingly, he’s suggesting that you drink what you like. With Asare there’s always an element of surprise. Recently he hosted a wine dinner at Lobster Bar Sea Grille, but what guests were served weren’t strictly the crisp whites and bold reds you’d expect. It was champagne. “ People gave us these looks when we poured champagne in their wine glasses”, says Asare, “ but it was really about having people think about champagne as something that can nicely accompany food and challenging the stigma that when it comes to sparkling wine is that it’s for celebration, you pop it open on graduation day or at a wedding.” That’s not the only way Asare works to make wine accessible and enjoyable to oenophiles and novice tasters alike. Asare’s wine list spans from classic Italian reds and whites from Napa to unique bottles from regions widely considered “new” in the wine world. His top regions to watch include South Africa and Greece. No matter your taste, his list has something that will excite you. His geographical approach to pairing is one that’s got people paying attention. “ Let’s take Lobster Bar Sea Grille’s menu for example. It’s mainly seafood, so I’ll research wine traditions surrounding coastal regions whose diets have historically been seafood heavy. One example of this is Liguria which is south of Piedmonte, Italy. It’s a region that’s kept with the tradition of a seafood heavy diet, and not only that, but they have historically created wines that complement their foods, so wines from that region usually pair well with our dishes.”, Asare explains. “I like to guide people and show them something unique” he says, “but ultimately it’s about your experience. A cabernet with your dorad? Sure, there’s no wrong way if you’re enjoying it.” Asare’s passion for wine is contagious. That’s why everyone on staff at Lobster Bar Sea Grille learns about wine. “We talk about it a lot. We taste, we discuss, it’s a team effort.”, he says. Asare’s golden rule to wine pairings? “The best wine pairing is the wine you like.”
