Francisco’s Centro Vasco-Lalalalalala Lobster

Pants at a Glance
  • scene: This place is a funny throwback; the walls are covered with an old if not pleasant mural of sunny seaside Spain; giant 20lb lobster claws dangle from the wall randomly, in case you forgot what the main attraction of this place is
  • sip: Red Sangria, aka Happy Juice
  • savor: Baked clams oreganato; lobster; shrimp with green sauce
  • sit: Bring anyone who can appreciate the novelty of this place, or wants a big lobster; definitely not a first date place, because you need to get down and dirty with some lobster and garlic to really understand what this place is about
