Postcard from SoHo, NYC – Ed’s Lobster Bar Review


Greetings from SoHo! I’ll be in The Big Apple all this week, and I want to do a super quick update on my first night in New York City. Anytime I get a postcard from a place I’ve been and loved, I like to share it with you! My “postcard update” for this trip is from Ed’s Lobster Bar, a restaurant that’s just a few blocks away from the NOMO SOHO, where I’m staying the first few days of this trip (come back to see my hotel review).

There are so many awesome restaurants in SoHo! This will make it mighty hard to get the toned abs I told you guys a couple weeks ago I’m working on getting. For my first night in SoHo, I decided to check out Ed’s Lobster Bar, because it was highly recommended by a local I spoke to (and you guys know my favorite recommendations always come from locals). Here’s a review of what I devoured at this restaurant.

Ed's Lobster Bar

What I Ordered and Loved:

Lobster Ravioli: DROOL. Just thinking about this dish is literally making my mouth water! Lobster ravioli is one of my favorite dishes, and this is hands down the best lobster ravioli I’ve ever had in life. If I had to guess, it was probably the thick, tasty mushroom cream sauce that set it apart from all the rest. Oh, and I was told afterwards that this is also Ed’s fave.

Blueberry Crème Brulee: I was scared I would hate this. I love crème brulee, so I just knew the blueberries would mess it up. But, to my pleasant surprise it wasn’t bad! It was just different, but certainly not terrible as I was anticipating. Will I be putting blueberries in my crème brulee from now on? Probably not. When it comes to this particular dessert, I must say, prefer it the classic way.

Whiskey and Lemonade Cocktail: Don’t ask me the name of it, because I was a little too tipsy to remember. I just know it was mixed with whiskey, lemonade, and a bunch of fanciness. The bartenders were fantastic, and they really know what they’re doing. Can’t say that about every bartender I meet.

And the lucky recipient of this postcard will be my dear friend Ernest. He was the last person to send ME a postcard, so I’m going to return the favor and send this one on its way over to him.

That’s my quick update from SoHo – check back in later for more glimpses into my trip to NYC and to see a review of this super comfortable hotel room I’m staying in. Until next time, happy travels everyone!

  • That’s funny about the blueberries. I had the same initial thought. I think I’ll have to not trust your word on the place and see for myself when we’re in NYC. 🙂

    • I know you’re a foodie like me, so you will love this place! Hahaha yea…blueberries….very interesting idea for creme brulee.

  • Yess!! I was in SOHO this past July and stopped by Ed’s Lobster Bar. Also had the lobster ravioli – amazing! I paired it with some wine, and it was the perfect ending a long workday. Great review. 🙂

    • Yessss! I’m so glad you also experienced this place. Such a great spot!

  • Thanks for the review! I pinned it..we are heading to NYC soon, so if we head to SoHo, we ll keep this on top of the list.

    • Awesome! Please let me know what you think of it if you go there.

  • We’re from New York originally, but we’ve never been to Ed’s Lobster Bar. The lobster ravioli and the blueberry creme brulee just might have convinced us though. Also, I think you do a really nice job of taking your food and drink pics!

  • I love this post….Ill be sure to check out this restaurant when I go to SoHo!

  • Yum! Lobster Ravioli is so delicioius!! I also distrust the blueberries in creme brulee. I feel like bananas would be a better option there. While you’re in NYC you MUST also have a slice of real New York pizza (you’ll know its real because they’ll sell it by the slice, and that slice will be bigger than your face) and a black & white cookie- Two of my NYC favorites!!!

    • Black and white cookies?? That sounds delish!! I will have to try that!

  • Yum, the lobster ravioli sounds divine… hungry now 😉

  • Oh the food looks absolutely divine!! Makes me want to go to NYC just to try this haha

    • Haha! The food good NYC food is the ONLY thing that got me out the hotel, walking in 20 degree weather.

  • Looks alluring! would like to visit here when in SoHo.

  • ooohhhh nice! The ravioli look amazing and creme brule is probably my favourite food EVER so this place would make me really happy! Bookmarking it for the future! 🙂

    • You will love it!! The ravioli has me drooling just thinking about it.

  • Lobster-anything works for me! And when it is Lobster Bar, it works even better! 😉

    • Right? When I heard there was a lobster bar down the street from my hotel, I didn’t even hesitate!

  • I love blueberries on a creme brulee. I’ve had it before and it was fantastic! Any I love lobster, so this seems like my kind of place!

  • ster ravioli with mushroom sauce. oh happy day!!

  • Oh my goodness. I am pining so hard for all of the above now.

  • The Lobster Ravioli looks amazing. I would love everything you have listed here. Maybe we’ll get to check it out one day. Thanks for the review.

  • Oh my goodness…your pictures have convinced me that I NEED to eat here! I’m saving this for my next trip to NY! NOM.

  • Ami

    Your pictures are amazing. Unfortunately am allergic to Lobsters…but am guessing my hubby will like em.

    • Oh nooooo allergic?? So sorry! My dad is allergic to a lot of seafood too. I feel so bad for him.

  • I just looooove all food with lobster, so yummy, so tasty. Well, I don’t eat it very often, so I can really appreciate it a lot!

  • Oh, man! I also love a lobster ravioli and crème brûlée. My sister lives in Manhattan, so I’ll have to share this with her or make her take me there next time I visit!

  • I had to laugh reading this! They are all stronge pairings, lobster and mushrooms? Blueberry creme brulee? Okay the whiskey and lemonade is not so strange but . . . I think I’ll have to go just to try it!

    • HA yes you are right! They were very strange pairings! Even the whisky and lemonade was new for me. I usually drink Whisky with ginger-ale.

  • Looks like you had a great time:) Enjoyed your vlog!

    • Thank you for checking out the vlog! Glad you enjoyed =)

  • So I’m a vegetarian so no lobster for me, but all the rest looks jummie! 🙂

    • I’m a pescatarian and currently trying to make the switch to full-on vegetarian. I hope one day I can muster the courage to do it!
