The Lobster Box Restaurant Review

: This City Island landmark offers fresh lobster any way you like it---broiled, steamed, stuffed, fra diavolo or marinara. Start with baked clams casino, then indulge in Miguel's signature paella full of peas, chorizo, shrimp, mussels, clams, chicken, baby tails, and crab meat in a sweet saffron sauce. The menu also features a tender chicken piccata served in a lemon and caper sauce or the BBQ feast--a full rack of baby-back ribs, king crab legs, snow crab legs and fried shrimp over rice. The portions are generous and the water views are terrific.
