This inspired him to open the first Lukes’s Lobster in the East Village in New York in 2009.  Because the demand was so high, Luke and some partners opened their own seafood processing facility.  Luke liked this because it gave them the opportunity to have quality control over any lobster they served.

Luke now spends most of his time in Maine overseeing the processing facility as well as his new restaurant.  His partner Ben, oversees the thirty Luke’s Lobster locations internationally and in nine cities nationally.
