According to the New York Times, lobster prices have nearly doubled in the past year, thanks to a "confluence of bad weather, extremely cold water, and a lack of reserve supply."

Some current New England restaurant lobster prices:

  • Anthony's Pier 4 (Boston): $112 for a 3.5-pound lobster
  • Union Oyster House (Boston): $47.95 for a 2-pound lobster
  • Warren's Lobster House (Kittery, Maine): $28.95 for a 1-pounder

According to the owner of Warren's, "We thought we might have to change our name to Warren's Chicken House or something."
