Lobster Eggs Benedict anyone?

Seaworthy take on Eggs Benedict at Turning Point in Hoboken

Had a rare meal out last week – and swung by the Turning Point uptown (yes, the 411 Mascot Oscar came too).

And one of the summer specials this year, is a Lobster Eggs Benedict, which was quite interesting to say the least. A bit taken aback at the combination of seafood with a traditional land-based ingredients – I quickly warmed up to it. On top of the lobster, you also had your Hollandaise sauce, bacon, slices of avocado, poached eggs and spices on top of two slices of multi-grain bread. Also served with a side of TP’s “country potatoes” (if they only had fries… grr.)

Have any of you had this interesting dish? Or the Crabcake Benedict that’s on their regular menu?

I had Crabcake Eggs Benedict twice in town– here and at Anthony David’s. Yummy stuff.

The Lobster Eggs Benedict looks great.

Mmmmmmm… This looks good. A fancier take on my favorite dish from Harpoon Harry’s down in Key West. I like lobster, but I don’t loooove it. It works well with eggs benedict though, especially if there is enough lemon in the Hollandaise sauce.

Perhaps I will have to drag mcspacebar out there for breakfast or brunch one day.

Key West is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s been too long since I’ve been there. I’ve heard of Harpoon Harry’s. I was never there. I don’t remember exactly where it is.[quote comment=”192922″]Mmmmmmm… This looks good. A fancier take on my favorite dish from Harpoon Harry’s down in Key West.

Stuff like that is pretty common in new england. I generally think crab is a better seafood to use for it since it’s softer. They go well together.

Not sure about using the multi-grain toast though, that sounds weird. I would use an english muffin or something similar.

I love lobster and crab. I agree with you. I would definately try this if it were on an english muffin. The playing around with the recipe by adding whole grain toast and avocado doesn’t do it for me. I also love avocado and whole grain bread/toast just not in an eggs benedict recipe.
