I’m rarely off during the weekdays because I’m working, but since it’s Labor Day, I’m off! The Mr. and I were starving and only bought food for dinner, so we went out in search of lunch somewhere nearby downtown. We walked over to Stone Street since we really wanted to sit outside for lunch and enjoy the ideal 80 degree day today. Also, Tribeca gets really crowded with strollers when it’s nice out. The babies love Battery Park City and Tribeca!
We got ready in minutes and left. This is my “I hope I don’t see anyone I recognize outfit because I just got off the couch.”
Stone Street is full of bars and outdoor seating. Ulysses seems to have the most real estate on Stone Street, but all of the places have benches sit on along the cobble stone street. We noticed these “How to Eat a Lobster” placemats and realized they had a Monday deal. $19.95 for a whole lobster, corn on the cob, and a baked potato. Not bad! (It made me miss Burger & Lobster, haven’t been there recently.) Ulysses is always reliable for good outside seating though, even when they don’t have a promotion. I like it best for drinks during the day, and some basic bar bites.Here’s a close up of the sign and deal:I spy an intense eyeball. I am not sure why there’s a Greek flag hanging…lol Beautiful day on Stone Street today:Eight dollars each for a beer–one Guinness and one Radberger. It’s best when you get a beer cylinder here, but we weren’t going to be that ambitious for just two of us. After all, we do have work tomorrow.We decided to share the mini cheeseburgers and a lobster special. I love how they positioned the lobster so it looks like it’s clutching the corn on the cob and about to take it down. The baked potato is hiding under there too. (The baked potato was nice and salted on the outside. I hate when they just bake it and bring it to the table completely plain!)
Look at that huge piece of lobster meat!A relaxed crowd enjoying drinks and lunch at all the bars and restaurants on Stone Street on this pleasant Labor Day Monday:There he is copying me and snapping photos:Here’s another weekend lunch/brunch time I was at Ulysses with my family. It was a lot hotter that day!Mmmmm stuffed bowl with cheesy corn on the cob! Definitely not diet-friendly!And calamari…perfect salty food for drinking:I am definitely a repeat client of Ulysses. I generally only visit when it’s nice enough to sit outside!
