Free Lobster? The Line Forms Here

Yes, it’s a national chain and, judging from its Times Square address and the general tenor of its advertising, most likely a tourist trap. But are you going to let those limitations stand between you and a chance at a free all-you-can-eat lobster dinner?

Red Lobster has announced its first-ever Endless Lobster promotion, scheduled to take place at its lone Manhattan location on March 28. Those who qualify (more on which shortly) will have access to unlimited 1¼-pound lobsters along with melted butter, steamed broccoli, and a choice of side.

So how do you get in on the deal? By being one of the first 150 people to reserve once reservations open here on March 21. Those 150 spots, by the way, will be spread evenly across three seatings — one between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., one from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and one from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Red Lobster, 5 Times Square (Seventh Avenue bet. 41st and 42nd Sts.), 212-730-6706.
