Lobster Empire @ Drago’s
For my money, the only way you can find a better lobster than those at Drago’s is to travel to Maine or Canada. They sell so many lobsters at Drago’s that they’re always still fat and meaty by the time they get to your table. This variation cuts the lobster open end to end, and covers it with a creamy sauce with oysters and mushrooms. It also comes with their terrific seafood pasta.
