Day Trip from NYC: Moby’s Lobster Deck, Highlands, NJ

If the idea of eating lobster means the same thing to you as it does to me—Wet Naps instead of cloth napkins, paper bowls instead of China, French fries doused in malt vinegar as a side dish, not spinach soufflé—then don’t miss this easy day trip from New York City.

Kid-friendly Moby’s Lobster Deck in Highlands, New Jersey on the Jersey Shore is under an hour and a half away: a straight shot south on the Garden State Parkway… so even I can’t get lost. (There’s also a ferry from Manhattan if you’d rather.) Just order your lobsters, fries, cole slaw, corn and beer (birch or otherwise) at the counter, take a seat at a waterside picnic bench, try not to drool while you wait for your number to be called deli-style, then dig in. When I was there, lobsters were one 1⅛-pounder for $19.95 or two for $29.95. Read: no-brainer.
