Crabs walk sideways, but lobsters walk straight -- the Fourth Estate restaurant plans a Lobster Night on Wednesday, Sept. 26, the last Wednesday of the month.
Members pay $25 and non-members $30 for a steamed 1¼ pound Maine lobster with coleslaw (or salad) and choice of French fries or oven-crisped new potatoes.
Reservations are requested 24 hours in advance to assure a crustacean. Please call 202-662-7638 to reserve. A very limited number of lobsters will be available for those without a reservation.
The regular Fourth Estate menu will be available for non-lobster lovers featuring veal paillard, vegetarian Greek-style moussaka, grilled chicken and the world-famous NPC crab cakes.
Desserts include a blueberry and lime tart and the ever-satisfying chocolate and raspberry mousse.
Ice cream and sorbet from Silver Spring’s Moorenko Ice Creamerie is also available.
