Right on the border between Chinatown and Downtown sits Lobsta Shack, from the creators of the popular Lobsta Truck. After opening a mobile eatery in San Francisco, founder Justin Mi has opened a brick & mortar on the corner of Grand and Cesar Chavez, reports Brigham Yen.

With Jose Monterrosa (JW Marriott) at the kitchen's helm, the offerings expand a bit from the typical clam chowder, lobster bisque, crab roll, and lobster troll menu available on the truck. Think lobster spaghetti, lobster mac & cheese, popcorn shrimp, sandwiches, and even whole grilled (or steamed) lobster priced currently at just $21 with two sides. The operation soft opened some time last week, which means that Chinatown and Downtown denizens can get more than their fill of lobster and seafood at this new fast-casual spot.

Open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
