BK Lobster CEO and Founder Rodney Bonds announced a special offer on the signature “Flatbush Roll,” the jerk sauce-infused lobster roll inspired by Brooklyn’s Caribbean community.
Bonds is offering the special for locals and tourists during the Labor Day weekend from Friday, August 30 through Monday, September 2. BK Lobster is located at Nostrand Avenue and Atlantic, just a few blocks away from where the West Indian Day Parade will take place.
“We are conveniently located on Nostrand Avenue, one of the most popular streets that people who attend the West Indian Day parade and participate in the parade normally stroll through to get a bite to eat before or after the festivities,” said Bonds. “There are tons of parties in the area all weekend long. We have the community in mind and want to offer locals and tourists a fast luxury gourmet dining experience for those that want to sit and eat.
“Or, they can come and pick up and take it to go,” he added. “And they will enjoy the wait because we have the best music selection in the area as well.”
BK Lobster officially opened its doors to the public on Saturday, August 17. The grand opening capped a series of three events where each included a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Bonds unveiled the “Golden Lobster Roll,” the world’s first-ever edible gold-infused lobster roll.
The extravagant seafood item priced at $100 is wrapped and topped with 24K edible gold leaves and includes a glass of 23K wine with the order. As the newest entry in the fast-casual dining market, the shop offers a menu which includes a variety of lobster rolls named after various areas in Brooklyn: the Bay Ridge Roll, Flatbush Roll, Coney Island Roll, Brooklyn Latin Roll, and the BK Sauce Roll.
Each roll has ingredients inspired by its moniker and vegan sauce. The vegan elements are an excellent choice for seafood lovers, pescatarians, flexitarians and semi-vegetarians who are considering the vegan lifestyle or currently transitioning to become a vegan.
The Lobster V-BLT (vegan bacon, lettuce and tomato) is an option for true vegans.
