LoLo’s Lobster Roll

Ever since LoLo’s Seafood Shack in West Harlem opened last October, Chef Raymond Mohan and owner Saki Young have been serving up delicious fresh seafood that is reminiscent of the seafood shacks found in the Caribbean but with a hint of New England. That New England twist is apparent in their popular lobster roll. The simple, timeless sandwich screams summer.
