If Sam Sifton’s dining brief on Rocky Sullivan’s lobster night made you crave lobster, you don’t have to go as far as Red Hook to get in on the action. The other night we walked without a reservation to Brooklyn Fish Camp, the Park Slope companion to Mary’s Fish Camp, and settled down to an excellent lobster right away. Though you can get the 1 1/2 pound lobsters grilled, the char can distract from the true lobster flavor. They’re excellent Maine-style: boiled to bring out the sweet, saline, deep-sea taste and served with drawn butter alongside. Get one with a pint of Six Point and a side of Old Bay fries.
