A spin-off of the popular Mary’s Fish Camp in the West Village, Mary Redding’s blue-tiled cafe features the lobster roll (a light lobster salad with celery, lemon juice and mayo served on a grilled Pepperidge Farm bun) that she made famous. Also popular are their lobster knuckles. which is the meat between the claw and the body, according to owner Derek Dos Anjos, who described it as “the most succulent part of the lobster.” Fried clams, cod fritters, Canadian steamers and soft shell crabs add to the sensation of being at a seaside clambake. There is always a range of catch-of-the-day options, such as whole tilapia, served grilled or fried. There are dinner deals every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. For example, on Monday you can purchase a $16 pasta special, and on Thursday there are $20 lobster pot pies. For dessert, Brooklyn Fish Camp offers a citrus scented pound cake, steamed lemon pudding, and a hot fudge sundae made with iI Laboratorio del Gelato ice cream. Beer and wine are available. Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday. Closed Sundays.
