Lobster ME improves on the typical food court options at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas by providing quick, affordable New England lobster rolls, lobsticles, chowder, and lobster ice cream at a stand-up storefront on the strip. Last June, Eater hit us with the news that the eatery was eventually coming west to L.A. The restaurant confirms it is still searching for a location for an opening in the third quarter of 2012, with the heaviest trolling going on at Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade. It should be a noticeable improvement on the fast-casual options there, and might even keep a few tourists from falling into The Lobster's trap.
