November Happenings and stuff to be Thankful for!

By | Events, Uncategorized | No Comments

Happy November!

Wow how did it get to be November!  Where has this year gone?  We’re incredibly grateful for the warm welcome that we’ve received at the Fairfield Kitchen in our first 11 months here in town.  We’re still Fairfield’s best kept secret so be sure to tell a friend where we are or better yet, bring them here for their first time!  The truck has continued to be busy at private parties and corporate events through October and it looks like the last 2 months of the year will keep the truck busy as well!

Victorinox Swiss Army Fall Warehouse Sale:  November 16 and 17

November Event – Victorinox

We love working with the great folks up at Victorinox because hey, we’ve always been big fans of the iconic Swiss Army Knife but they also make all sorts of other cool stuff from clothes to watches to luggage.  Steve our COO swears by their roll on travel case given his former years as a global marketing guy.  His current Victorinox case has nearly 5 million air miles on it and it’s still going strong!  We’ll be bringing the LobsterCraft Food Truck up to the warehouse sale on the Friday from 11am – 7pm and Saturday from 11am – 4pm so that the sale shoppers can stay well fed while they get some incredible deals!  The Victorinox Fall Warehouse Sale runs Thursday through Sunday.  Check out their Facebook page for more information: Victorinox Fall Sale Facebook Event Page

 

 

South Norwalk LobsterCraft Kitchen Build Update

Work continues on our second location in the Historic South Norwalk train station building!  Permits are done, demo and build out is underway!  Now we’re into “construction time” so bear with us!  We’re really excited to have a SoNo location up and running before the end of 2018 and we hope that you’ll come by and check it out!  Follow us on Facebook as we’ll be posting more regular updates there!  In the meantime, here’s our creative director’s rendering of the signage that we’ll have installed when we open.  Exciting stuff is happening!

 

 

 

 

 

 

September Update

September News

Hi Folks,

It’s been a wonderfully busy summer for LobsterCraft both with the permanent location in Fairfield which is open Tuesday through Saturday 11am to 8pm and Sunday’s 11am to 3pm, and with all of the private parties, corporate catering, and special events we’ve done with the LobsterCraft Food Truck.  We are truly grateful to have so many loyal customers and to have met so many new ones!

Fairfield Location Hours.
A lot people are asking us when we’re shutting down for the season.  Strange question as we’re open year round!  Also, rumor has it that pirate themed temporary tattoos are back for your little pirates…  Or hey, if you want one for yourself, no one here is going to stop you.

Booking the truck
We’re seeing people already book the truck for 2019 and we’re booking events in late October-December now.  If you want to have the truck for your fall party or holiday party, now would be a great time to either send us an email at  Contact LobsterCraft or call us at (203)292-5350.  We’ll happily customize a menu for your from our extended catering menu that will help you create a truly special and unique event!

Menu Updates!!!

Some great new items on the menu in Fairfield!

The Land Lubber is our 12 hour hickory and cherry wood smoked pulled pork served on our signature toasted roll.  “Wow” “Spectacular” “Who knew a lobster place could make such awesome BBQ” are some of the comments we’ve heard from the folks that have tried it.  It’s been a favorite on our catering menu for a few years, so it was time to get it up and running at the shop.  Now when you suggest LobsterCraft to your co-worker or family member that doesn’t or can’t eat lobster, we’ve got an option for them to order as well.

Who likes dessert?  We do!  Introducing our very own LobsterCraft Lemon Moon Pie.  Perfect size, right balance of tart and sweet.  It’s a great way to finish off your meal.  The same local bakery that makes our signature rolls has done these for us, and they’re mouth waveringly good!

More Public Events Where The LobsterCraft Food Truck Will Be At In July:

July 14

New England Night with the Connecticut Tigers at Dodd Stadium in Norwich on Saturday, July 14!  For one night only, The Tigers are changing their name to THE LOBSTER ROLLS!  How awesome is that?  And guess who they’ve chosen as their official lobster roll partner for the night?  Yup, LobsterCraft!

July 14, 2018

New England Night, CT Tigers as the CT LOBSTER ROLLS

We’re totally coming home with some of those foam lobster claws so don’t be surprised if you walk into the kitchen and see one of the crew running around with them on!  So make the trip to Norwich to watch some great local baseball, enjoy an award winning lobster roll from LobsterCraft and if you’re of legal age, enjoy a Samuel Adams New England IPA.  Grab your tickets from the link below and we hope to see you at the game!

July 22

There’s something about outdoor sporting events in the summer that just naturally go great with the delicious flavors of our LobsterCraft lobster rolls!  The LobsterCraft Food Truck returns to the beautiful grounds of the Greenwich Polo Club for the Silver Cup Finals on Sunday, July 22.

July 22, 2018

Greenwich Polo Club Public Match – Silver Cup Final

Gates open at 1pm and we’re there until 5pm unless we sell out, which does happen on occasions at these events!  So what were saying is swing by the truck early, get your favorite lobster roll from us, and then stomp some divots knowing that you’ve gotten your fill of lobster roll!

These are incredible events and if you’ve never experienced polo, the Greenwich Polo Club is a superb venue for the sport.  Check out their website for more details on tickets and VIP packages.  It’s a great way to spend a summer afternoon.  Tickets available through this link:

Check back here on our website or follow us on Facebook to see where the truck will be for its public appearances.  Remember, if you don’t feel like chasing the truck (we know it’s exhausting running after a moving truck), come visit Captain Mike and the crew at our Fairfield Kitchen location.  We’re open Tuesday – Saturday from 11am – 8pm and Sunday’s from 11am – 3pm.  Call us at (203)292-5350 if you need directions or if you want to order in advance.  For Fairfield residents, remember that GrubHub is our delivery service!

LobsterCraft Kitchen in Fairfield is up and running!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Great news, we’ve dropped anchor at 1891 Post Road, Fairfield, CT across the road from Rawley’s Hot Dog stand and tucked in the back parking lot behind the travel agency and podiatrist. The entrance is around the side of the building so come on by and say hello to Captain Mike and the crew! We’ve got a small indoor space with a wall counter and awesome outside seating for when Mother Nature decides to warm us up again after the winter that never wanted to end! We’ve got all the great, award winning lobster rolls, lobster mac n’ cheese, lobster bisque, clam chowder, and fries. Throughout Spring and Summer, we’ll be featuring specials such as our take on the cold lobster roll, which we call the Dirty Maynard, a lobster salad, lobster tacos, and a cold shrimp roll. We’ll post up what we’re doing on Facebook and Instragram, so if you’re not following us, please do so! What’s great about the kitchen for our fans is that there’s now a place where LobsterCraft’s award winning food is available without having to chase the truck, especially since we really don’t street vend anymore. Also because we have a permanent location, we’ve partnered with GrubHub for delivery during the hours we’re open. Just use the Grubhub app or go to their website to place an order and their dedicated food delivery driver will bring your LobsterCraft food right to your home or office.

So as we head into Summer, have you booked your private party, corporate event or special event with us? Please do so quickly as the calendar is filling up.
