Susan Povich and Ralph Gorham of Red Hook Lobster Pound

Red Hook Lobster Pound boasts that it serves the freshest lobster in New York City - and with good reason: Maine native Susan Povich (pictured) cooks the lobsters that Ralph Gorham drives each week to Maine to select. The shellfish is prepared to order at their Red Hook storefront or one of a number of borough flea markets, street festivals, and city parks where the pair sets up shop. To date the couple has sold more than 12,000 live lobsters and 19,000 lobster rolls.
